An airman assigned to an Air Force Special Operations Command wing has been arrested for allegedly pointing a shotgun at a pregnant motorist following a brief fender-bender in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
Ty Reid Gilbert, 22, was arrested Monday and charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill, a third-degree felony, Okaloosa County Sheriff's Department records show.
According to an arrest report obtained by local ABC News affiliate WEAR-TV, the victim said she followed Gilbert to his home after he rear-ended her at a Fort Walton Beach intersection.
Reid allegedly began shouting at the victim before entering his home and returning with a loaded Mossberg 500A 12-gauge shotgun, which he pointed at the victim, according to WEAR-TV.
Gilbert, an Aerospace Ground Equipment specialist (AFSC 2A632), has been assigned to the 1st Special Operations Maintenance Squadron at Hurlburt Air Force Base for the last year and a half, a 1st SOW public affairs official confirmed.
