West Palm man arrested after horn honking leads to road rage


A West Palm Beach man was arrested last week following a road rage incident in which he allegedly damaged another vehicle whose driver honked her horn at him, according to an arrest report.

Lloyd Fisher, 50, is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, throwing a missile into a vehicle and criminal mischief between $200 and $1,000 and was released Friday from the Palm Beach County Jail after posting a $3,000 bond.

The driver of a Hyundai told Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies that she was traveling westbound Thursday on Club Road, south of Belvedere and west of Haverhill roads west of the city limits, when a Lexus SUV traveling eastbound drove into her lane, nearly causing a crash, the report said. The motorist driving the Hyundai honked as the Lexus came toward her.

Fisher used the Lexus to block all traffic, including the Hyundai, the report said. Fisher got out of his vehicle, opened his trunk and pulled out a box containing brake pads, then walked toward the Hyundai “screaming and yelling.” He threw the box at the Hyundai’s rear window while the driver was attempting to back up to flee the scene.

Fisher then allegedly approached the Hyundai’s driver side window and began hitting it with a glass bottle.

An off-duty PBSO deputy witnessed the attack and detained Fisher.

Fisher declined to speak to deputies about the incident.
