A Florida man found a unique way to prevent another from laying his hands on a gun.
The truck driver stopped at a red light and Aponte got out of his car, approached the vehicle and began punching the driver’s face through the window, according to an arrest affidavit.
The victim’s girlfriend screamed that there was a gun in the truck in an attempt to stop the attack when her boyfriend was unable to grab Aponte’s hand. The girlfriend did not actually have a gun, police said.
Aponte told the family, “I’ll show you a real gun,” and then started to walk toward his vehicle. Traffic prevented the truck driver from moving forward, so instead, he backed up his truck and parked it on top of the Camry, so Aponte wouldn’t get the gun and cause further harm to his family, police said.
Witnesses were able to confirm the victim’s versions of events.
Aponte was arrested at the scene and charged with burglary, battery, criminal mischief and driving with a suspended license. The truck driver was not arrested.

Quick thinking on the part of the truck driver – and a good reason to have a lift kit on your truck, in case of emergency!
