Man charged with firing a gun during traffic dispute

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS – A man was arrested for shooting at a man who chased him down for driving a truck through his front yard.

Charley Cecil White, 28, of Keystone Heights, was charged on Jan. 18 with aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony, discharging a firearm from vehicle within 1,000 feet of another person, possession of a firearm and ammo by a convicted felon, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance and attempting to flee or elude law enforcement with lights and sirens active. His bond was set at $305,017.

According to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, it responded to a call about shots fired at the intersection of Oakleaf Road and Hot Springs Court. They met the victim, who said a man drove his extended cab pickup truck at a high rate of speed on Oakleaf before pulling into his driveway and through a ditch in his front yard before turning onto Hot Springs. The truck came to a dead end and made a U-turn where he was intersected by the victim who wanted to know why he drove through his yard.

White sped away without a response, according to CCSO. The victim was standing in the dead end when White stopped down the street and fired at least one shot toward him. White was eventually arrested a short time later following a high-speed pursuit that included more gunshots.

A man riding with White said they veered into the yard after they cut off the victim, who was driving a minivan. He said the man driving the minivan followed them to the dead end.
