Florida Road Rage Video

The hot television story of the week, at least so far, is about the lunatic in Florida who backed up so he could literally ran over a  bagger.

Thirty-one-year-old Robert Paul Vance, who is being described as an habitual traffic offender, turned a verbal dispute with 46-year-old Joseph Calderazzo into a couple of felony charges. The incident occurred in heavy traffic on Highway 41 in Lutz, Florida about 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

Vance cut off a pack of motorcycles returning from the Florida National Cemetery in Sumter County northeast of Tampa. At a red light, Calderazzo confronted Vance about his erratic driving. Vance backed up and drove into and over Calderazzo’s bike. Apparently, Vance was sober.

A passing motorist named Abraham Garcia, filmed the incident on his smart phone and posted the video to his Facebook page where it has gone viral. Garcia told WFTS, “The guy driving the car was driving recklessly, like crazy out of control…I saw him almost run one of the bikers over, like off the side of the road. So, then the bikers caught up to him at a red light and words started exchanging, and then the guy went complete psychopath.”

Calderazzo, a Navy veteran, suffered a broken leg and a sprained knee as a result of the collision. His passenger, Melanie Ann Milinkovich, suffered abrasions consistent with a motorcycle accident.

Ruined Tire

Vance destroyed his right front tire during the collision but managed to flee the scene. He was apprehended within minutes by the Florida Highway Patrol after he stopped to change his tire. He was initially charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and leaving the scene of an accident involving injury. The charges were upgraded over the weekend and he is now charged attempted felony murder. His license was suspended at the time he drove into Calderazzo and Milinkovich. Vance was convicted in 2011 of hit and run and driving with a suspended license.

Calderazzo told WTSP “I thought the guy was trying to kill us obviously.”

“You know, you don’t know what’s going through your mind. Is he going to put the car in reverse? Is he going to turn around? Is he going to stop and pull out a gun? You don’t know what’s going on.”

Vance is now being held in the Pasco County jail. His bail is set at $115,000.

    NCRider, you got that shit right!!!

  4. NCRider Says:

    I’m glad pretty boy Vance was charged with attempted murder (thanks to Mr. Garcia). But if this had been the IO, it would have been self defense.



  5. Dutchboy frmo Says:

    Glad the State for ONCE recognized that attempted murder is still AM even if your victims are some “dirty bikers”. About time. Welcome to the fed fella! Let me introduce you to the Big House Crew.

  6. Paladin Says:


    Because Vance (I keeping reading Vince) is incarcerated, I think at the moment, lead is not a viable choice. Iron (steel) on the other hand…

    And as always, long may you ride.


  7. Base Says:

    Some folks just need to be culled from the population! This ass hat being such a person.

  8. kidjudas Says:

    I think Robert Vance needs a bullet through the ear to get the message across and help him understand the severity of his actions.

  9. Grimey Says:

    This dumbass is going to get his. Sometime down the road when the media has moved on to something else this guy is going to find himself in some pretty tough company.

    If you get in a fight in NC, someone pulls a gun and you take it away your bail gets set at $100,000. Didn’t mean to hijack, I’m just with you on that shit CC.

  11. panamaa Says:

    Only in fucking Florida… Gezzzzz

  12. The Confederate Celt Says:

    Let’s see here – In Florida, you try to kill a couple of motorcyclists and your bond is set at $115,000. If you attend a COC&I meeting in Texas, your bond is set at an even $1,000,000.

    Truth, Justice, & the American Way.

  13. Nags Says:

    I sure hope this fuck winds up somewhere with a few guys who know the love of being in the wind and are willing to make his stay in whatever government facility he winds up in as uncomfortable as humanly possible for the next 10-15 years. That is if he survives that long.

  14. Brad H Says:

    Iron deficiency? Please sir, DO NOT give the defense any ideas. They’ll jump at the chance for anything new!

  15. Just Bob Says:

    Had a pack of us fucked with by one of these pricks on the way to Vegas once. Its about time one of them gets his just due.

  16. Chesty Says:

    Paladin, iron? Sure you didn’t mean lead?

  17. Grumpy Says:

    With Florida law,he could have been shot & killed an it would have been a legal shooting.Attempted murder ? Biker could have said he was in fear for his life,an walked.

  18. ak rack Says:

    Mr. Vance certainly does not appear to take criticism well.

  19. Paladin Says:

    Vance obviously suffers from an iron deficiency. My hope is that in the not too distant future, Vance gets the attention needed in order to curtail any future problems.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),

    the system can’t keep him off the road, might be time for another avenue.
