FL:Daytona man wins stand-your-ground hearing after road rage attack

Long, detailed article. It is hard to claim that you were not the aggressor when you got out of your car, walked up to the other guy, and then punched him.

DAYTONA BEACH — Marc Garcia said he just wanted to get to Orlando to see his son play in a flag football game. Instead the Daytona Beach resident became embroiled in a road rage incident, got punched and then drew his gun and fired off a shot.

Then Garcia got thrown into jail along with the man who punched him.

Garcia was cleared during a stand-your-ground immunity hearing in which Circuit Judge R. Michael Hutcheson dismissed a charge of aggravated assault with discharge of a firearm, which if convicted could have sent him to prison for 20 years.
