DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (WSBT) – A Florida man is in jail after police said he threatened to “remove” another person during a dispute over remote control vehicles and shot a victim’s car.
According to the report, 42-year-old Torrie L. Sloss drove up to the victim on the morning of August 14, blocking the movement of his car.
Sloss sparked a controversy as the victim allegedly was repairing remote-controlled cars for Sloss. He reached out through the open window and hit the victim with his hand.
Police say Sloss then drew a pistol from his belt and threatened to “turn off” the victim, who was sitting in the passenger seat.
Detectives believe that it was then that he fired a bullet that shattered parts of the window, while the glass injured the victim’s face and chest.
The unidentified victim was taken to hospital and then discharged. After the incident, Sloss fled to an unknown destination.
Fortunately, the police say he was caught and sent to prison on August 16.
