BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton Police arrested Michael Anthony Fox who is 30 and lives in Boca, and charged him with aggravated assault after they say he threw a “deadly missile” from his car. Cops say it happened as part of a “road rage” incident in the area of 2999 Clint Moore Road. The “deadly missile” was actually a 12-inch Maglight flashlight which — as anyone who has ever held one knows — is not exactly lightweight . Police say he threw it from his car into an occupied moving vehicle. The impact was so strong that it dented the driver’s side door.
Fox was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail where he was later released on his own recognizance. And no joke on the “deadly missile” description. Under Florida Law he was charged with 790.19-2668 “Weapon Offense — Missile Into Dwelling Vehicle Building Or Aircraft.”
