Just past midnight on Dec. 9 a vehicle started tailgating another on Belle Terre Parkway in Palm Coast. The vehicle in front applied the brakes to stop the tailgating. The tailgating driver pulled up parallel to the other car and the two drivers exchanged middle fingers. Then Robert Cameron Wilson, a 21-year-old resident of 2 Fairfax Court in Palm Coast–he’d allegedly been the tailgater–“pulled out a black semiautomatic pistol and pointed it directly” at the driver of the other vehicle, who called 911 and sped off.
A Flagler County Sheriff’s deputy pulled Wilson over at six minutes after midnight near Thai By Thai, the restaurant. Deputies recovered a Remington BB gun from the back pocket of the driver’s seat, charged Wilson with aggravated assault, and placed him under arrest. He was booked at the Flagler County jail.
He had not posted bail by the time he was served with a new arrest warrant on Thursday for an entirely different charge: armed burglary. That charge was related to a May 26 incident where Wilson is alleged to have threatened individuals with an ax after entering their home on Rolls Royce Court in Palm Coast, uninvited.
The incident had begun when Wilson was at the house the previous day with two others. He and occupants of the house got into an altercation–first in the house, then in a car near the house. Those involved were all teen-agers, two of them 16, one 15 year old and one 18 year old. After the second argument Wilson allegedly threatened to return the next day. He did, bringing two people and entering the house through the front door, which had been unlocked. He was carrying the ax. According to residents at the house, he approached them and allegedly threatened them, trying to start a fight.
One of the residents then went to his mother’s room, retrieved a 9 mm Taurus handgun, walked back downstairs and fired two or three shots outside the front door as Wilson and others were outside. Wilson and the two others fled.
The man who fired the gun did not initially report the incident to law enforcement but threw the gun in a pond off Royal Palms Parkway. But part of the incident was captured by someone who posted video on a SnapChat account. That footage was turned over to law enforcement. The investigation led to the new charge against Wilson, who is now held on no bond.
This is Florida. Never even look at someone who is bothering you. Lock your door and slowly drive away while you call 911 on your phone out of sight. Hope that they arrive before you get popped. This is what it means to feel oh-so-safe cuz everyone has a gun.
And apparently the ONLY solution is more guns ..
I am sure all the people involved in the aforementioned incidents never have anything to do with drug dealing whatsoever.

Sounds like a real model citizen. Good thing we have police to enforce laws and protect the public against piles of garbage like his guy. Unfortunately, liberal socialists want to defund the police, release felons like this beauty, and reduce sentences for violent criminals. I’m not sure who is worse, a criminal or a socialist… or maybe they are one in the same.
You are so well informed I am floored. Read about what defunding the police is all about and you might learn something or not, wisdom is not for all.

There ya go, gotta inject the political conjecture into everything. Being a zealot is an unhealthy mental habit. Try not associate everything on earth with your political leanings, it’s narrow minded and immature. Just sayin.
Being a self righteous liberal is a real bad life choice and in today’s social climate I wouldn’t really call it injecting anything, more like calling it like it is, I know common sense is a hard thing for some to wrap there heads around
If you build it palm coast, they will come
You mean “If you build a DUPLEX, they will come!”
no good says
this guy is the subject of systematic racism(still don’t know what that is). we need to inform the local ACLU so he can be released on NO bail. this is a terrible injustice – free him now. he is not a dangerous individual just a misguided youth looking for free drugs for his problems. please ACLU get him out now
We should ban ax ownership—turn yours in—no questions axed.
