Georgia man arrested in Gainesville for brandishing gun on interstate


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Jimmy Lee Abraham-Boone, 29, of Stone Mountain, Georgia, was arrested yesterday after allegedly brandishing a gun at another car on the interstate near Gainesville.

At about 11:30 a.m. yesterday, a call was received about a suspect who pointed a gun in the direction of a car occupied by a Panama City man and his 15-year-old daughter. The caller said the suspect’s car, a black Chevrolet Malibu, had exited at Archer Road; an Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy pulled the car over on Archer Road, and a Florida Highway Patrol Trooper arrived to assist.

The victim told the trooper that he and Abraham-Boone had an “altercation” on the roadway, and once when he looked toward Abraham-Boone’s car, Abraham-Boone was pointing a gun at his car. His daughter reportedly told a deputy the same story.

Post Miranda, Abraham-Boone reportedly said he did not pull out a gun, but he and the victim had stopped on the side of the road, where he told the victim he had a gun. After the trooper said that his story did not match the story of the victims, Abraham-Boone reportedly declined to answer any more questions.

Abraham-Boone has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. Bail information is unavailable on weekends.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
