Road Rage Turns into Just Plain Rage; Driver Beats Woman in Excelsior
|Speeding + beating = road rage|
At about 6:30 a.m., the couple was walking across the street at Persia Avenue and Madrid Street when a driver speeding in a green car swerved passed them. The woman looked at the driver and yelled out "whoa."
The driver then made a U-turn, stopped the car, got out, and started beating the woman, according to police reports.
The passenger of the car also got out and jumped in on the attack, punching the woman. The victim's boyfriend tried to help her, but the men punched him and broke his nose.
Both suspects got back into the car and sped off.
And to prove that criminals are not that bright, one of the men left his driver's license and DMV papers on the street where the beating had occurred.
The couple grabbed the papers and called police, who were able to broadcast the name of at least one of the suspects. Both men were quickly found, in what cops are calling "the best arrest of the day."
And probably also the easiest arrest of the day.
