Reginald J. Migues
Detention Deputy employed with HCSO for the past 11 years and was assigned to the Falkenburg Road Jail

On August 5, just before 5 p.m., detectives with the HCSO Internal Affairs Unit arrested an off-duty detention deputy after he was involved in a verbal traffic altercation in Seffner.
According to detectives, just before 10:30 a.m., Migues and Langley argued with each other during a road rage incident that occurred along Williams Road and U.S. Hwy 92 in Seffner.
Both men pulled their vehicles into a parking lot at 5520 Carmack Road in Seffner. Migues exited his vehicle and walked towards Langley who began exiting his vehicle. Migues pulled out his personal Glock 40 cal handgun, chambered a round and pointed the gun at Langley putting Langley in fear of his life. Langley got back into his vehicle and called 911. Migues went back to his vehicle and the confrontation ended with no injuries.
During today's investigation, Migues admitted to possessing the loaded firearm and chambering a round as he approached Langley to confront him.
Once the Internal Affairs detectives completed the investigation, Migues was arrested and charged with one count of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Migues was booked into the Orient Road Jail late this afternoon.
Reginald Migues has been suspended without pay pending the termination process.
