Detectives arrested an 18-year-old woman in Clearwater after she allegedly attacked a 72-year-old and her daughter in a road rage incident.

It happened at about 11:00 a.m. on Monday when Tia Pisani became involved in the road rage case on Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. near Belcher Rd.

The dispute spilled over into a nearby parking lot, where things turned violent.




Pisani reportedly attacked a 72-year-old woman and her 50-year-old daughter. She pointed a gun at the woman and pulled the trigger. Fortunately, the weapon was an unloaded airsoft gun. Both of the women suffered minor injuries before Pisani left the scene.

Detectives tracked down the tag and arrested Pisani for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, battery on a person 65 or older, leaving the scene of a crash involving property damage and tampering with physical evidence.

The victims son and grandson spoke out only to Action News.

We are not releasing his name because they are so troubled and worry about retaliation.

"It is tough to talk about. What she did was despicable, horrific, and terrifying. And to do that in broad daylight in the middle of the road and then she beat and ruthlessly punched my mother and grandmother in the head." he said. "It does not matter if it is an air soft or an actual rifle or an any actual gun. if you point and pistol whip someone with it that is despicable."

He said that he is also trying to come to terms with no one intervened on a busy Monday afternoon.

"It disgusts me to know that no one came out to help," he said.

His focus is to get the two women he loves on the path to healing.

Pisani has bonded out jail.

"She knows what she did is wrong and the courts are going to do it's justice," he said.
