BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Like a scene from a mob movie, a man taking out the trash from Shane's Rib Shack at 2240 NW 19th Street says that he was strongly encouraged — by way of a gun — to stay out of court.

According to the victim, a black Toyota Camry approached him and that people who he says he knew got out — at least one with a gun. Before he could respond, the victim had a gun to his head an was told that he would be “hurt” if testified in court against him on drug related charges.

The assailants took off before Boca PD arrived on the scene.

No arrests yet…although it seems possible that aggravated assault may be added to the drug charges.
