He was arrested after the victim positively identified him.

Saturday’s incident happened on Salerno Road. The victim in this case told deputies that 49-year old Kevin Carey of Stuart pulled a gun on him in a parking lot. The victim, who was operating a motorcycle, told deputies that Carey was tailgating him for about a mile.  He tried to get away by pulling into the parking lot.
