A road rage suspect with ties to Chesapeake, Virginia is still in jail in Tampa, after he was arrested by Florida Highway Patrol officers for smashing a auto window to bits during a heated road rage incident that was caught on video.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers say Starowicz was driving a blue Jeep that was trailing another driver's van as it slowed to merge into another lane along Interstate-4 around 11:44 a.m. on Friday, May 12.
Part of the incident was caught on video.
Starowicz threatened to kill the driver of the white van, James Nathaniel Robinson, 34, of Tampa.
According to troopers, Starowicz was traveling westbound in his Jeep on the I-4 entrance ramp from 21st Street Friday afternoon when he cut in front of the van and came to a sudden stop.
A window on the van was smashed. Video of their interaction sometime after the window was shattered shows Joseph screaming at the van that he was nearly run off the road and the driver "cut across lanes".
He's was arrested for burglary of a conveyance, driving while license suspended and leaving the scene of a crash.
Troopers said he then fled the scene. And his prior conviction for assault was in Chesapeake, Virginia in 2010.
