When the victim arrived in Wewahitchka, she stopped briefly to conduct work-related business off State 71. Once back on State 71 she noticed Rogers was again behind her.

Rogers continued to tailgate her vehicle south on State 71, at speeds estimated at roughly 60 mph, before reaching Fleming Curve at which time Rogers drove his van into the rear end of her van.

Rogers pulled along the driver’s side and collided again with the victim’s vehicle, forcing her from the road.

Once he opened the victim’s door and discovered it was not his ex-wife he fled.

Investigators determined Rogers’ actions were intentional, believing it was his ex-wife. Rogers was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.

He was released on $5,000 bond.
