Tallahassee Man Accused of Road Rage

Road rage put a Tallahassee man behind bars. He's now facing a "burglary with a person assaulted” charge.

The Leon County Sheriff's Office says 50-year-old James Mayo followed a car full of teenagers into a bank parking lot.

Apparently angry, they cut him off.

The sheriff says that's when he reached into the car, grabbing the kid at the neck. Bank employees intervened, calling 911.

SGT Chris Chase of the Leon County Sheriff's Office, said, "Escalating to this point of violence is rare, however, it can happen. We tell people if someone does cut you off or you are involved in a road rage where you're the target of road rage, ignore them."

Deputies say Mayo admitted he should've handled the situation differently.
