Florida Man In ‘Stand Your Ground’ Parking Lot Shooting Charged With Manslaughter
Michael Drejka, the Florida man who gunned down a 28-year-old Markeis McGlockton in a parking lot dispute has been charged with manslaughter.
McGlockton, 28, died July 19 after the altercation, which began as an argument over a parking space. His girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, had parked in a handicapped parking space, and Drejka confronted her while McGlockton was inside the store.
McGlockton came outside, approached Drejka and shoved him to the ground, surveillance video shows. Drejka pulled out a handgun, and as McGlockton backed away from him, shot him in the chest.
Drejka thought he would be protected under Florida’s bogus “Stand Your Ground” law…and it almost worked until the State Attorney conducted a full investigation and charged him with manslaughter.
Michael Drejka was arrested on Monday and booked into Pinellas County Jail.
His bail is set at $100,000.
