A Florida man was charged with aggravated assault after allegedly pointing a gun at a woman’s head when her friend used the suspect’s driveway to back up a vehicle, authorities said.
Terry Vetsch, 60, of Palm Coast, approached the two victims from his home on Saturday, yelling and “armed with a gun after one of the victims had briefly used Vetsch’s driveway to backup their vehicle,” according to a Facebook post from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.
Vetsch “used the gun to strike the victim’s backseat window before the other victim approached him and an argument ensued. Vetsch then pointed his gun at the victim’s head and continued to argue with them,” the sheriff’s office said.
According to a charging affidavit provided by the sheriff’s office, he also allegedly threatened to shoot and kill one of the victims.
Vetsch told a deputy who responded to his home that he thought the alleged victims were his neighbors, whom he had previously had several arguments with.
The deputy received permission from Vetsch to review surveillance footage that captured the incident. The video showed a woman following Vetsch toward his property while arguing, but the victims “had not trespassed” when Vetsch pointed the gun, according to the sheriff’s office.
Vetsch could not be immediately reached for comment Friday afternoon.
