SEFFNER, Fla. (970 WFLA) – An off-duty Hillsborough County detention deputy was arrested Tuesday and charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after a traffic incident in Seffner, sheriff’s officials said.
According to detectives, around 10:30 a.m. detention deputy 54-year-old Reginald Migues and another 41-year-old man argued with each other during a road rage incident that occurred along Williams Road and U.S. Hwy 92.
Officials said once both men pulled their vehicles into a parking lot off of Carmack Road, Migues got out of his vehicle and walked towards the man who was getting out of his car, too. Then, deputies said Migues pulled out his personal glock 40 cal handgun, chambered a round and pointed the gun at the man putting him in fear of his life. The man got back into his car and called 911, deputies said, and Migues went back to his vehicle. The confrontation ended with no injuries, according to HCSO.
During investigation, investigators say Migues admitted to possessing the loaded firearm and chambering a round as he approached the man to confront him.
Officials said Migues was booked into the orient road jail and has been suspended without pay pending the termination process. According to HCSO, he has been a detention deputy for the past 11 years and was assigned to the Falkenburg Road Jail.
