Hillsborough deputy resigns after road-rage incident

The off-duty Hillsborough deputy who aimed a gun at another driver during a road rage incident earlier this week has resigned, officials said.

On Tuesday, Reginald J. Migues, 54, was arrested after he and another driver, 41-year-old Arthur Langley, pulled over and got out of their cars after an incident along Williams Road and U.S. Highway 92, authorities said. As Migues walked toward the other man, he pulled out his personal Glock .40 caliber handgun, chambered a round and pointed it at Langley, according to investigators.

Langley got back into his car and called 911, authorities said.

Migues was booked into the Orient Road Jail on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, records show. He posted $2,000 bail the same day.

Migues was suspended without pay after he was arrested and resigned from Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday afternoon, said spokesman Larry McKinnon. The sheriff’s office was in the process of filing the termination paperwork when Migues quit.

Migues worked with the sheriff’s office for 11 years, most recently as a detention deputy at the Falkenburg Road Jail. He had a clean record and had never been disciplined before, McKinnon said.
