The driver was then allegedly hit multiple times in the face by Garcia, who threatened to shoot him and appeared to go for his waistband. The victim could maneuver his vehicle around Garcia’s vehicle by reversing.
Authorities are searching for the victim. They want to speak with him. His SUV was a dark shade of gray and bore Oregon plates. The sheriff’s office is also interested in speaking with anyone who saw Garcia driving or who saw the altercation occur.
According to the sheriff’s office, Garcia was detained by Hillsboro Police in November 2022 for similar behavior after he waved a gun at two individuals. Officials said Garcia may face further charges beyond the disorderly conduct allegation for which he was arrested and transferred to the Washington County Jail.
