Florida Highway Patrol said Destiny Star Harrison fired several rounds at a Duke Energy pickup truck when both vehicles were traveling southbound on Interstate 275 at approximately 8:24 p.m. The driver of the pickup truck, who was not hurt in the incident, told FHP troopers he was tailgated by Harrison and that she wouldn’t pass him even after he changed lanes. The driver said he saw Harrison waving a handgun at him, accelerated to get to the exit for North Dale Mabry Highway and heard her fire the weapon. Troopers noticed a bullet hole just above the truck’s passenger side taillight.

Harrison’s Lincoln Navigator was found disabled on a median near mile marker 41. Tampa Police Department assisted FHP in locating and arresting Harrison without incident. She was found to be under the influence, driving without a valid license and in possession of three firearms, 23.1 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and alcoholic beverage containers.
