Florida Man charged with kidnapping after mistaking a bike for his son’s.

A Lehigh Acres man is facing felony robbery and kidnapping charges after he took a teen’s bike and forced the youth to come to his home, claiming the bike was his son’s.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said that Christian Javier, 43, stopped a 15-year-old boy on Xelda Avenue in Lehigh Acres around 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Javier, driving a white Ford F150, forced the teen to stop and told him “That’s my son’s bike.”  He tossed the bike into his truck and forced the youth to ride with him.

The report said Javier then drove to his home. Once at the Crawford Avenue address, Javier asked his son if the bike was his. The son told his father that the bike was not his.

The report said that Javier then put the bike back in the truck and drove the teen and the bike to another spot where he told the youth to get out and threw the bike onto the road.

The teen’s 12-year-old brother, who had been riding a bike with him, followed the truck for a time and then rode home to tell his mother. The teen’s mother signed a desire to prosecute affidavit.

Javier, whom was arrested at his home Tuesday, remains in Lee County jail on $125,000 bond and is scheduled for a Feb. 27 court date.

The homeowner woke up to find Martin Henderson rummaging through his kitchen in the dark, according to WTVT TV in Tampa, FL.

“He was still naked,” Loland said to the TV reporter. “I said, ‘You’re lucky I don’t knock you out.’”

Henderson told the police that he had been smoking spice all day long. Spice is a synthetic form of marijuana that has been known to cause this sort of thing.

Eustis police officer accused of waving gun at woman in road-rage incident

EUSTIS, Fla. – A Eustis police officer is off the job, accused of waving her gun at another woman in a fit of road rage.

Deputies said it happened in a beauty shop parking lot in the 7000 block of West Colonial Drive.

It’s not the first time Senior Officer Theresa Graham has been accused of using a weapon during an altercation.

Graham was cleared of any wrongdoing in the past incident, but she’s now on administrative leave.

A woman parked in front of Evelyn’s Hair Creations said the off-duty officer laid on her horn in a fit of road rage earlier this month before pulling out a gun as the victim tried to wave her around the victim’s parked car.

According to the arrest report, “Theresa Graham pulled her car next to the victim’s car where the two of them exchanged words,” and the victim told deputies that’s when Graham “put her car in park, reached into her glove box, removed a black handgun and pointed the gun at the victim and the witness.”

According to the report, Graham told deputies the other driver was holding an unknown object” and she got out her gun “to protect herself.”

She claims she never removed the weapon from the holster or pointed it in the direction of the victim, the report said.

It’s not the first time Graham has been investigated for actions involving a gun.

In 2009, she fired two shots at a suspect at a Eustis Dollar Tree store when he grabbed her agency-issued stun gun and used it on her during a domestic disturbance call she was investigating.

Eustis police could not say whether the gun used in the road-rage incident was Graham’s agency-issued weapon.

She has been with the department since 2006, and was recently honored for saving a man’s life with CPR.
