(BOYNTON BEACH, FLA) — Former DEA Special Agent Brad Sosnowsky, 55, first told Boynton Beach Police he shot another driver in self-defense in a road-rage incident earlier this week at the intersection of Boynton Beach Boulevard and Congress Avenue.

However, police say that video allegedly reveals the other driver who was shot was unarmed and never tried to hit the former agent.
Sosnowsky is now charged with his shooting.

Police say Sosnowsky had a dashcam inside his car and the video revealed he almost collided with the victim’s car as they exited I-95 at Boynton Beach Boulevard.

The video then shows that, Sosnowsky drove west at 70 mph until he reached the stoplight and was heard saying, “Come on, (expletive). Let’s go.”

The report says Thomas Vanatwerp III, 67, was shot as he approached Sosnowsky’s car and was hit in the chest.

The alleged shooter can be heard on the video saying “That’s what you get for trying to throw a punch to my face.”

If the victim dies, charges will be upgraded to manslaughter or murder.

Sosnowsky was also taken to the hospital but is expected to make his first appearance in Court Friday morning.
