Driver, 18, says he was attacked by 2 teenagers on a motorcycle

Authorities are looking for two teenagers on a motorcycle who began yelling at another teenage driver and then tried to beat him after he pulled over on the side of the road.

According to a Hernando County sheriff's report, the two teens, who look about 17, cut off Spring Hill resident Jeremy Sieber, 18, who was driving along Spring Hill Drive on Saturday afternoon. Sieber told authorities that the two teens began yelling at him, so he yelled back and then pulled over to confront them.

All three started arguing and the driver of the motorcycle struck Sieber in the face with his helmet, the report said. The two teens then fled.

Authorities did not release a detailed description of the teens.

Assault charge, weapon violations

lead to 3-year prison sentence

BROOKSVILLE _ A Brooksville man was sentenced to three years in prison and two years of probation Monday after being convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed firearm and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Calvin Carr, 35, of 317 Union St. in Brooksville, was arrested in November after authorities said he broke into a house, threatened to kill a woman, pointed a gun at the homeowner, then left that house and beat up another woman _ the mother of his child _ outside a bar.

When authorities picked up Carr, they searched his car and found a loaded gun with the serial number scratched off and one spent casing, the report said.

Carr was sentenced by Circuit Judge Richard Tombrink.
