Video: Florida troopers search for pair accused of shooting at the driver they said hit their car and drove off

A man and a woman are wanted by the Florida Highway Patrol on charges of assaulting a motorist who hit their car and fled the scene on a road in the Tampa region, according to witnesses.

At about 5 p.m. on Tuesday, near the junction of US 301 and Martin Luther King Boulevard, the two were involved in a minor collision with a 31-year-old Brandon woman, according to the police.

The guy and the lady can be seen bashing a 2019 Chevrolet car in a video that has been shared on social media. Get out of the car, the man can be heard screaming at the driver.

FHP claimed the guy was attempting to smash the car’s glass while brandishing a gun. FHP said that at least one bullet was fired at the witness before they started recording.

Another onlooker was informed by the witness who took the video that the driver of the Chevrolet had struck the couple’s car and then drove off.

She shouted at the couple while she videotaped, pleading with them to contact the police as opposed to beating the driver.

She hollered out the passenger window, “Hey, call the police!” “You’re going to prison. Stay out of prison!”

Anybody with information regarding this event is urged to call Crime Stoppers at **8477 or FHP at *347.
