BALDWIN PARK, Fla. - Orlando police say a driver, who was apparently angered over being ticketed by an officer in Baldwin Park, rode a motorized scooter to shoot at the officer while wearing a mask.
Police said Sgt. Kevin Roberson was working a traffic enforcement detail Wednesday afternoon on Fox Street when he conducted a stop, issuing the driver, 63-year-old William Casper Cates, a ticket for running a stop sign.
A short time later, Cates rode back to the area on a motorized scooter. The officer says Cates then returned a third time on the scooter and intentionally ran a stop sign in front of Roberson, according to police.
When Roberson attempted to stop Cates, who was wearing a ski mask, Cates then crashed, according to police, who said Roberson went over to check on Cates and Cates started to fight Roberson.
During the struggle, Cates pulled out a gun and shot at Roberson twice, police said. Roberson didn't return fire and eventually restrained Cates with the help of other officers...
