Brooksville, FL (November 29, 2018) – In Brooksville, a 67-year-old man said that he was angry when a teenager sped past him in a truck on Tuesday morning and ended up pointing a gun at the teen in a parking lot of the school.
Robert Browsky was arrested yesterday, November 28, when he pointed a gun at a teenager in a confrontation that took place in the parking lot of the Hernando High School. Browsky is now facing charges of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm on school grounds, and more.
The incident happened around 7:40 a.m. in the morning when a student told a deputy at the school that a man was pointing a gun at a student in the parking lot. Browsky was interviewed by the deputy, who said that he had been walking his dog in the morning when a black pickup truck sped past him. Browsky signaled for the driver to slow down, but the driver backed up and started cursing at him.
Browsky got in his vehicle and followed the driver, who he believed to be a student. He found the truck and took a photo of the license plate, but the student got out and tried taking the phone away. Browsky said that the student was yelling profanities at him, which is when he reached in and pulled out his gun on the student. When the student took off, Browsky got back in his truck and went into the school’s office.
