FORT WALTON BEACH, FL – A Fort Walton Beach man involved in a road rage incident that injured a 59-year old Baker resident last month is now charged with aggravated battery causing physical harm.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrested 27-year old Devin Robbins today. Robbins and the victim were involved in a road rage incident near Old River Road and Highway 90 in Baker on October 22nd.

Witnesses say Robbins got out of his car and shouted at the other driver, who also got out of his vehicle. Robbins then got back in his car and drove at the victim at a high rate of speed, hitting him and sending him into the windshield. The victim rolled off, suffering large abrasions and a separated shoulder. A gas station surveillance camera caught a portion of the encounter on video.

Witnesses say the victim had no weapon, his hands were empty, and he never approached Robbins in any way before he was hit.
