ADW with a Baton
A road rage incident Friday afternoon turned into an assault with a deadly weapon arrest. At about 4:43 PM, two male drivers became involved in a physical confrontation at Santa Anita Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, after stopping in a north bound lane of traffic. One driver, a 19 year old from Arcadia, struck the other driver, a 20 year old male from El Monte, in the head and arm with a collapsible baton. A witness waiting in line at the nearby In & Out intervened and grabbed the baton away from the suspect until APD arrived. The victim was treated at the scene for his injuries and the suspect was arrested.
