YUMA, Ariz. – A case of road rage over the weekend in Yuma was caught on camera.
The startling video is hard to watch; an angry elderly man threw a punch at a motorcyclist and then shoved the female passenger at a busy intersection Saturday afternoon.
“Call the cops right now. Help! Anyone?” the man driving the motorcycle yelled out.
The apparent road rage incident began when the motorcycle cut of the man’s car on Pacific Avenue headed toward 24th street. The woman on the bike describes the moment in a cell phone video.
“As we were coming up the hill, we decided just to cut him off.”
A go pro on the biker’s helmet captured what happened next as a very angry driver jumped out of his car. The motorcyclist quickly pinned his attacker down on the road while they waited on police to arrive.
“I did nothing to you!”the biker exclaimed on camera.
“Yeah! You just broke the law,” the aggressor responded.
In Arizona, improper lane changing is considered aggressive driving, but the violence in the video is no answer. Officials urge victims of aggressive driving to avoid eye contact with the person, get out of his or her way and call police.
The altercation ended with the aggressor being taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.
The case is under investigation, and police officials say charges are still pending as they await lab results.
