Man Accused of Road Rage Attack
ST. CHARLES (AP) - A 27-year-old St. Charles man is accused of attacking another motorist in what is being called a case of road rage. The incident began Thursday night when a 51-year-old man slowed at a stop sign to turn. A motorist in a black Ford pickup zipped through the turn lane and past him, prompting the turning motorist to flash his bright lights in an effort to get a license plate number. Police say the pickup driver followed the older man home, yelled obscenities, then attacked him. The victim's wife called police and got the suspect's license number. He was arrested at his home. His name has not been released pending formal charges. The victim was treated at a hospital for bruises and scrapes.
