Road rage: Man jailed for
chasing driver who tailgated him
OAKLEAF – An Orange Park man was arrested for driving recklessly and resisting arrest on Nov. 3 after he became outraged by another driver tailgating him.
Jerry Lee Barnes, 52, also was charged with breach of peace and not wearing his seatbelt after an off-duty deputy with the Clay County Sheriff’s Office noticed him driving erratically and apparently arguing with and chasing the driver of another car on Ivory Crossing and Oakleaf Plantation Parkway in what deputies called a case of road rage.
According to the arrest report, the deputy saw Barnes change lanes without using his turn signal at a high rate of speed on Oakleaf Plantation Parkway. He also saw Barnes make an obscene gesture with his finger toward the other driver.
Barnes drove to his house in the Cambridge subdivision. He was arrested after he yelled profanities at his neighbors and failed to comply with the deputy’s orders and threatened the deputy.
According to the sheriff’s office, Barnes also was arrested in 1991 for DUI manslaughter.
