PORT CHARLOTTE — An elderly man who was arrested after sticking up for his 61-year-old wife following a road rage incident took things too far, authorities say.
Robert Howard Negrich’s wife was driving back to their home on the 2400 block of Levali Street in Port Charlotte Thursday afternoon. For unspecified reasons, an 18-year-old man driving behind Negrich’s wife began honking at her and making a rude gesture with his hand, near the intersection of Pellam Boulevard and Wintergarden Avenue, according to a Charlotte County Sheriff’s report. Unknown to both, the angry teen was heading next door to the woman’s house to visit a friend. They pulled into neighboring driveways at the same time, and the two reportedly yelled at each other before going their own ways.
