MOUNT DORA, Florida—A man who allegedly has been harassing his uncle for about four months was arrested for several charges after being accused of driving a truck into a fence at his uncle’s home Monday morning and intimidating his uncle and his wife Monday evening.
Around 7:15 a.m. David Dwayne Johnson, 45, is alleged to have driven his truck into his uncle and aunt’s fence on 11th Avenue, destroying about 20 feet of the fence, according to an arrest affidavit. The couple called Mount Dora Police Department to respond and told an officer Johnson had been harassing them for around four months because Johnson’s uncle was Johnson’s father’s power of attorney.
They said Johnson constantly calls and texts making vague threats against their family and his behavior had intensified over the last few days, including driving by several times over the weekend, honking and yelling. The couple played a voicemail Johnson left that morning and provided video of the fence incident, the affidavit states.
Around 6:20 p.m. Monday, MDPD again responded to the couple’s home. The couple reported they left their home and Johnson pulled his vehicle “really close,” almost striking their truck. The female victim picked up a .38 caliber handgun and pointed it toward the roof to “show Johnson” the gun.
Both vehicles moved forward, and the female victim exited the truck with the gun and Johnson allegedly “quickly reversed the vehicle in her direction,” the affidavit states. The female victim pointed the gun at Johnson’s truck and fired, striking the driver’s side window and the windshield.
Johnson reported he had been shot at to an Orange County Sheriff’s Office deputy and MDPD responded and asked Johnson to accompany them to the police department. After interviewing Johnson, he was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, criminal mischief and stalking. He is being held at the Lake County Jail on $16,000 bond.
