Wesley Chapel driver pulled gun in road rage incident, Pasco Sheriff's Office says

ODESSA — A 19-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after pointing a shotgun at another man who complained about his driving, authorities said.

The dispute happened on State Road 54 near Gunn Highway, not far from the construction site where both men had been working.

Both men left work about 5:30 p.m., according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Justin Villalobos was driving "erratically," Daniel Bustillo told deputies. So Bustillo, 31, rolled down his window at a red light and shouted at Villalobos, "What is the problem?"

Villalobos grabbed a shotgun from his backseat and pointed it at Bustillo, who then called 911, the sheriff's report says.

Villalobos told investigators that Bustillo "was trying to run me off the road."

Villalobos, 27637 Ravens Brook Road in Wesley Chapel, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. He remained Thursday at the Pasco jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
