Published

on

An elderly Florida man was charged with attempted murder after opening fire Friday afternoon on another driver.

Police said 83-year-old Mario Perez-Tano was stopped at a traffic light in downtown Miami when another driver pulled in front of his Volkswagen Beetle.

Perez-Tano blocked in the other vehicle as it pulled out of a tire shop and got out of his car to confront the driver with a .38-caliber handgun, authorities said.

Police said Perez-Tano fired one gunshot at the other car’s tire and then another shot into the driver’s side window.

The other driver, Miguel Garcia, was not shot and quickly sped away.

But Perez-Tano got back into his car and pursued Garcia, police said.

Both drivers were stopped by a drawbridge, and police arrested Perez-Tano there.

Garcia was treated at the scene for minor injuries, authorities said.

Published

Amid an overcrowded Democratic presidential candidate field, it's hard to distinguish yourself from the pack if you don't slot easily into the scale that runs from "pro-corporate centrist" to "left-populist." If you're former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke —  who falls somewhere in the middle, politically, and somewhere towards the top, looks-wise — you pull a militaristic policy proposal out of your hat that recalls some of the most campy pseudo-fascist sci-fi ever written.
