2 men attack each other with bat and pipe in road rage incident
A vicious road rage attack between two men in Texas was caught on camera Monday morning and now police are searching for the two individuals seen in the video.
Posted on YouTube on Jan. 25, the 35 seconds of footage shows a bat-wielding man wearing khakis and a grey T-shirt approach a vehicle parked in traffic on a busy Austin, TX. road around 10:45 a.m.
A second man, wearing jeans and a long-sleeved shirt, steps out of his car to confront the other man with his PVC pipe.
Both men can be seen violently striking the other person with their weapon until traffic began moving again. That’s when the two suspects stop fighting and walk away from the moving cars.
Officer William Costell of the Austin Police Department said an investigation into the confrontation is ongoing.
“We’re still trying to identify the parties involved so right now, there’s no charges filed as the detectives are working through that,” Costell told NBC.
The officer also gave some advice to those who may feel like a victim in a road rage incident.
“If you’re feeling like you’re a victim of road rage, you want to remember to just keep cool. Don’t antagonize the other person, don’t look at them, don’t make eye contact with them, don’t give them any hand gestures, don’t display any weapons – just keep on about your day.”
It is unclear what caused the incident.
