OKALOOSA ACADEMY TEACHER ARRESTED FOR AGGRAVATED ASSAULT WITH A FIREARM FOLLOWING ROAD RAGE INCIDENT
WALTON COUNTY, FLA— An Okaloosa County teacher is arrested following a road rage incident where he pulled a weapon on a teenager.
On August 2nd, Brandon Greggory Crumbley, 36, was involved in a road rage incident where he brake-checked a car driven by a 16-year-old. A short time later, Crumbley was parking his vehicle at his apartment complex when the victim drove by rolling down his window and words were exchanged. As the driver passed by, he told deputies Crumbley lifted his shirt revealing a firearm.
The driver never stopped the vehicle and drove past Crumbley.
During the investigation, Crumbley lied to investigators, telling him he never removed the weapon from the holster and did not use it in a threatening manner.
After deputies reviewed surveillance video, it was found Crumbley not only lied but appeared to taunt the victim with the weapon. As the vehicle was seen leaving the area, Crumbley is seen holding the gun over his head pointing it at the victim’s car and then towards the sky as if to wave him back towards him.
A warrant was submitted for Crumbley’s arrest, and he was located Thursday, August 31st by the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force at his home on Hammock Trail East in Freeport and taken into custody.
Crumbley is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, improper display of a firearm, and obstruction. He was given a $10,000 bond and is still incarcerated at the time of this release.
