At approximately 3:20 a.m. on February 23, 2011, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office was called to the area of Tram Road and Capital Circle Southeast in reference to a disturbance involving a man in a
Jeep striking a cyclist riding on Capital Circle.
Deputies responded to the area and located the cyclist who advised them that the driver of a dark colored Jeep had passed by him very close while traveling northbound on Capital Circle. The cyclist
then observed the Jeep make a U-turn and pass by him headed south on Capital Circle. Moments later, the same Jeep passed by again, but this time the passenger side mirror struck the cyclist on the
arm. The cyclist contacted the Leon County Sheriff’s Office as he observed the same vehicle complete two more passes south and then north again on Capital Circle.
Deputies responding to the scene observed a dark colored vehicle matching the description provided by the cyclist near Old St. Augustine Road and Capital Circle traveling northbound. The vehicle was stopped and the driver, Sherard Graves, 25, was positively identified by the cyclist. Graves was arrested and transported to the Leon County Jail. The cyclist was not seriously injured.
