Suspect On The Run After Warrant Issued For Threatening To Kill Another Driver
Saturday, July 11, 2020
Department Report Number:
Detectives are asking the public for information regarding the whereabouts of 23-year-old Michael Floris. On January 28, 2021, a warrant for Floris’ arrest was issued by the Maricopa County Superior Court on charges of assault, aggravated assault and disorderly conduct. Floris is now believed to be in Southern California but has connections to both the Phoenix and Las Vegas areas.
The charges against Floris stem from an incident which occurred on July 11, 2020 on US 60 near Alma School Road in Mesa, Arizona. A female victim was driving eastbound on US 60 when Floris drove along the victim’s passenger side and began yelling at the victim while pointing a handgun at her.
When the victim exited US 60 at Alma School Road, Floris stopped in front of the victim’s car, exited his vehicle and approached her while yelling, pointing a gun at her and threatening to kill her. The victim filmed the incident and AZDPS was later able to identify Michael Floris as the suspect.
If you have any information regarding Michael Floris’ whereabouts, please contact AZDPS at 877-272-8329 or submit an anonymous tip online at www.azdps.gov/tips.
