Driver Arrested and Charged With Attempted Murder After Road Rage Brawl Caught on Camera
A New York City driver captured on video attacking another driver with a box cutter has been arrested and charged with attempted murder.
Kevin McClean confronted a driver who he believed cut him off in the Greenpoint neighborhood of the Brooklyn Borough on Tuesday afternoon, police officers told the New York Post.
Footage captured of the altercation shows McClean, 46, swinging the boxcutter as he attacks the driver of a Toyota after both men exited their vehicles.
McClean then steals the other man’s keys and hops into his car after about 30 seconds. As the other man reaches through the driver side window to try to grab his keys, McClean drives off.
As McClean drives off, he swerves into the unidentified second driver, who is sandwiched between the moving car and a parked van, before being thrown over the hoods of both vehicles, losing his shoes in the process. Despite what appears to be a severe collision, he suffered only cuts and a bruised hip, officers said.
McClean was charged with attempted murder, first-degree robbery, assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree menacing, and leaving the scene of an accident.
Pix11 reported the victim was a 24-year-old livery cab driver who claimed he was cut off himself by McClean, who was driving a white Hyundai with Florida plates.
McClean appeared before a judge on Friday and is being held on $100,000 bail, reported ABC.
