Display Of Firearm Deemed ‘Reasonable Response’ In Truck Parking Dispute


A confrontation between two truck drivers over parking protocol sparked police intervention in Sarasota, Florida on June 14th. The situation unfolded at the North Washington Boulevard and 20th Street crossroads.

The conflict began when one driver was unloading his trailer and another driver requested him to move his vehicle from the pathway. In response, the first driver brandished a baseball bat, leading the second driver to reveal his legally owned firearm without aiming it at anyone.

This resulted in the first driver retreating and authorities being called. Upon their arrival, the police deemed the second driver’s show of force as a “reasonable response” to the escalating situation.

The officers remained until the initial driver had finished unloading and departed.
