A Fort Myers man was found guilty Wednesday morning of threatening another man with a BB gun.

Clifton Lemanz Seawright, 39, was found guilty of aggravated assault following a two-day trial in Fort Myers. According to state attorney documents, the crime happened on Jan. 13. The victim was dropping off his child at the home of the child’s mother. Seawright was in the driveway and confronted the victim, starting an argument.

The victim responded to Seawright and got in his car to leave, when Seawright then took what the victim thought was a firearm out of the trunk of another vehicle, then pointed it at him. The victim was able to put his vehicle in reverse and drive away.

The victim immediately contacted the Fort Myers Police Department. Officers went to the scene and found a black Glock BB gun in Seawright’s vehicle, leading to his arrest.
