Taylor Sylvester

A road rage incident near Niceville Wednesday led to one vehicle ramming another and shots being fired from a handgun in response. 22-year old Taylor Sylvester of Niceville is charged by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. A Crestview resident says he and another man were in a red pickup truck near Highways 20 and 293 around 4:30 p.m. He used the shoulder of the road to pass a man in a blue car who was waiting to turn left onto County Line Road from Highway 20. He says the driver of the blue car, later identified as Sylvester, began to chase them and rammed his rear bumper. He told deputies a short time later on Highway 85, the dark car come out of nowhere and hit his driver’s side door several times. The victim says he feared for his life and shot one round from his handgun toward the blue car as it continued engaging. Damage was found on the truck’s rear and driver’s side of the vehicle. Damage from a bullet was found in the radiator of Sylvester’s car. No injuries were reported.
