Teen Threatened at Gunpoint by Ex-Cop Over Car Noises

A 49-year-old former Hialeah Police officer allegedly pointed a gun at his 19-year-old neighbor and threatened his life Monday over car noises. 

NBC-6 Miami reports 19-year-old Tyler Muraida was driving his black Honda in the Pembroke Shores community of Pembroke Pines when he was confronted by an armed Mario Perez. Perez allegedly yelled profanities at the driver and his 15-year-old friend, who was in the passenger seat.

Perez allegedly did not like the sound of Muraida's car and chased him, but the victim was stopped at the security gate of the community, and that's where the situation escalated. 

The suspect then punched Muraida, walked over to the passenger side and ordered the 15-year-old to pick up the keys at gunpoint, police said.

Perez was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a weapon and aggravated battery. He was being held on $21,000 bond. Miami Police Department Internal Affairs is investigating.
