A Kentucky man made an impression in a popular Florida beach vacation spot and landed in jail.
Kendall Bryce McFarland, 19, of Russell Springs, was driving over the Marler Bridge in Destin, Fla., on Sunday morning when he allegedly started tailgating a silver Chevrolet, according to the Northwest Florida Daily News and WJHG. After he pulled up beside the couple’s car, he exchanged hand gestures before displaying a 9 mm handgun and pulling back its slide.
Sheriff’s deputies later found McFarland, and his apparently loaded gun was under the front seat, the paper reported. McFarland admitted displaying the gun but said he didn’t point it at the couple. Two of his passengers corroborated the couple’s account.
McFarland told deputies that the couple made him mad for driving too slowly, according to the Daily News and WJHG. His charges included aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed weapon.
