Mayor’s Family Threatened in Road-rage Incident
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. —Family members of Daytona Beach’s mayor were the victims of a frightening road-rage incident, and Mayor Derrick Henry said Thursday that no one should be subjected to needless threats.
The confrontation began at a convenience store on Beville Road. Henry’s mother, sister and several nieces and nephews were in a vehicle nearly hit by a reckless driver.
Authorities said Sean Lincecum, 32, was that driver.
Authorities said the family briefly followed the car to get the tag number, but then turned away.
“He decided simultaneously, I guess, that he would follow them and ultimately make some threats to them,” Henry said.
Henry said Lincecum made threats to their lives.
“He said, ‘I’m going to kill my kids’ and everything,” Henry said.
Police officers said the enraged motorist went to his trunk, as though to get a weapon. Just then, traffic moved and so did the victims.
Officers arrested Lincecum several miles away. Officers did not find a gun in his vehicle.
Lincecum was booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail on several counts of aggravated assaul
