Road rage incident at SW 62nd Blvd and SW 20th Avenue leads to arrest


Toynesha Delores Brown, 23, was arrested yesterday afternoon after a road rage incident at the intersection of SW 62nd Boulevard and SW 20th Avenue.

According to the arrest report, Brown claimed that a witness almost ran her off the road into oncoming traffic. After both vehicles came to a stop at the traffic light, Brown allegedly got out of her vehicle, walked to the other vehicle, and spit on the driver’s window.

She then allegedly went to her trunk, got a tire iron out, and swung it at the other driver. Another person stopped at the light got out of his car to try to help defuse the situation. Brown allegedly raised the tire iron to try to hit that person, but he was able to back up, out of her reach.

When Gainesville Police Department officers arrived, they reported that Brown had the tire iron in her hand. Post Miranda, she reportedly said that she was preparing herself because she was surrounded by three men. The first witness filed a complaint withdrawal form; the second person to arrive is described as the victim in the incident. Brown has been charged with aggravated assault and released on her own recognizance.

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. 

  • Does this actually sound like a wise decision by law enforcement?

    “Brown has been charged with aggravated assault and released on her own recognizance.”

    So someone who was clearly agitated enough to not only get get out of their car, spit on a window, go back to their car and brandish a tire iron was given the opportunity to get back behind the wheel of their car and drive away. Was it determined their anger had subsided? Wonder if drunk drivers will be suing for unfair treatment soon?

    • This type of aggressive road rage has to have
      Consequences…yeah, why ROR her? They need to
      Keep her locked-up for having that bad hair-do.

    • You do realize law enforcement officers do not make the “decision” on how the case is handled once they arrest them and they are booked.

  • Yep, more ROR for violent crimes in Gainesville is why my entire extended family and myself do not go to Gainesville anymore and my friends that live there are moving to another county because of the rampant crime in Alachua County.

  • There is another stupid decision by the SAO led by Brian Kramer, a real dud! What? No TWAT TEAM callout like Bosshardt? Must be the new black philosophy in town, little or no bail for the brothers and sisters? KMA!
