You can’t make all of this up!  The criminality is off the charts with those who have continually attacked Americans who did nothing wrong on January 6, 2021.  We continue to uncover and discover the depths of those involved in the attack on Americans to be guilty of the crimes which they try to attribute to others.  The latest is former federal prosecutor Patrick Scruggs who was arrested for allegedly stabbing a driver on a Florida highway.

Truth Press reports:

A federal prosecutor who was involved in some of the early trials of January 6 Capitol rioters has been arrested for allegedly stabbing a driver on a Florida highway.

Patrick Scruggs, a 39-year-old former federal prosecutor, was driving along the I-275 on Tuesday morning when another car collided with his, according to authorities.

Video captured by a bystander shows a man – believed to be Mr Scruggs – getting out of his car and appearing to shatter the driver’s window of the other car.

The suspect then appears to pull out a pocket knife and slash and slice at the driver’s arms.

The unnamed driver, 35, was left with “multiple stabs and cuts in the arm”, according to the arrest report.

Police said that the driver had experienced a medical episode moments before the crash, which led him to swerve into two cars – one of them belonging to Mr Scruggs.

A Good Samaritan – who was behind the wheel of the second car that the victim hit – told CNN that he had noticed that the driver was slumped over in his car and realised he was in need of serious medical attention.

Ahmed Gahaf, 40, a Tampa resident, said he stopped his car to help the incapacitated driver.

At that moment, he said the driver woke up and jolted forward, accelerating his car into Mr Gahaf’s vehicle first.

He then tried to swerve the car but then also collided with the second car – belonging to Mr Scruggs.

The video, captured by a witness, shows Mr Gahaf on the phone to 911, trying to get help for the driver, when Mr Scruggs got of his car.

Mr Gahaf said he initially thought the suspect was coming to try and help the victim in the midst of his medical episode.

When he saw him allegedly stabbing the driver, Mr Gahaf said he went over to stop him – and was also threatened by the suspect, who wielded his knife at him, almost slicing his chest.

“I’m thinking he’s coming to help, you know, he’s coming to help, but he comes in like he already has plans,” Mr Gahaf told CNN on Sunday.

“I came in close to him to try to tell him stop… and he came in close to me, like one foot away from me, from my chest with the knife. And he said ‘You too? You want to kill me?’ I backed from him and was still with 911 and he kept going to stab him (the driver).”

Mr Scruggs has since been charged with armed burglary, aggravated assault and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to an arrest affidavit.

Prior to the road rage incident, the prosecutor had an illustrious career, working for over a decade as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Department of Justice, before joining an Altanta-based law firm, Barnes & Thornburg in May this year.

He is best known for being involved in the early prosecution of Adam Johnson, known as the “lectern guy” who ran off with then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s lectern during the January 6 Capitol riots.

Mr Scruggs was released from Pinellas County Jail on a $65,000 bond.
