Homosassa Road Rage Suspect Arrested After Shooting Incident on U.S. Highway 19

Tyler Grimison, 31, of Homosassa, has been arrested by the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) for his involvement in a road rage and shooting incident that occurred on March 5, 2024, on U.S. Highway 19.

According to reports, on March 5th, 2024, the victim was driving northbound on U.S. Highway 19 when Grimison intentionally swerved into and struck the victim’s vehicle on the passenger side. Following the collision, the victim heard what they believed to be a gunshot, causing them to briefly lose control of their vehicle. Grimison then allegedly passed the victim by driving on the shoulder of the roadway.

The victim described Grimison as a white male in his mid-30s with a trimmed brown beard, driving a newer model Jeep with unknown Florida plates and black rims.

Detective Michael Kelly of the Major Crimes Unit launched an investigation and reviewed surveillance footage from the area, which captured both vehicles. With the help of an anonymous tip, Grimison was identified as a possible suspect. He agreed to meet Detective Kelly in the Crystal River area, where probable cause for his arrest was established. Subsequently, detectives executed a search warrant on Grimison’s residence and seized the firearm believed to have been used in the shooting.

Sheriff Mike Prendergast expressed appreciation for the public’s assistance and Detective Kelly’s diligent work. He emphasized the seriousness of road rage incidents and the agency’s commitment to holding offenders accountable.

Grimison is currently in custody at the Citrus County Detention Facility without bond, facing charges of Shooting into an Occupied Conveyance, Discharging a Firearm in Public, and Criminal Mischief.
