Angry driver threw pocketknife, Pasco deputies say


Raging driver threw knife, deputies say

The beige sport utility vehicle had followed the woman for miles on the Suncoast Parkway, flashing its brights, swerving between lanes. The woman suspected the driver was upset he'd been stuck behind her at one point and couldn't pass.

He gave her the middle finger.

Then, as the woman tried to move into the right lane so she could exit at State Road 52, the other driver threw a pocketknife through her open passenger window, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. The knife was closed.

The woman was not injured in the Feb. 12 incident. She took down the SUV's license plate number and called deputies, who traced the vehicle to Carl Rohm, 43, a Spring Hill man who works as a server at Bern's Steak House in Tampa.

Rohm was arrested Thursday on a charge of throwing a deadly missile. He was released on $5,000 bail.
