LAUREL HILL—Multiple motorists trying to avoid a head-on collision say they were forced off State Road 85 Sunday night by a man heading south who repeatedly drove into the northbound lanes.
It happened south of Laurel Hill around 6:30 p.m,. according to a press release from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.
After a traffic stop on the reckless vehicle, Sheriff’s Office deputies found two small children crying loudly in the 2012 Dodge, which was being driven by 42-year old Timothy Gajka of Crestview.
Gajka then told deputies he was just "trying to scare" the kids because they were misbehaving.
He was charged with DUI, two counts of child neglect, and possession of marijuana.
