WINTER HAVE, Fla. – A Winter Haven woman was arrested after road rage led her to pull a gun on a victim and threaten to kill her.
On Wednesday at approximately 7:54 a.m., 25-year-old Bonita Adams of Winter Haven was traveling along 6th St. SE when she believed another driver cut her off after turning onto 6th St. from Ave. O SE.
As both vehicles stopped for a traffic light at the intersection of Ave. K SE and 6th St SE, Adams exited her vehicle with a handgun and walked to the driver’s side door of the victim’s vehicle.
Adams pointed her .380 handgun at the victim’s face and stated that if the driver ever cut her off again, she would “find her and kill her.”
The victim’s 12-year-old child was also in the vehicle and witnessed the incident.
Police say the victim’s vehicle was the third in line at the light near Winter Haven High School.
Adams walked back to her vehicle and when the light changed, the victim continued along 6th St while contacting law enforcement, according to investigators.
Officers located the vehicles in the area of 6th St. SE and Ave. C SE and made contact with Adams.
Adams continued to state that the victim cut her off and told officers that she did in fact walk up to the victim while stopped at the traffic light and pointed her handgun at the victim’s face.
Adams was taken into custody and charged with Aggravated Assault With A Deadly Weapon and Exhibiting a Weapon Within 1,000 Ft of a school.
