A 24-year-old man was arrested on Friday in connection with a “road rage” incident in Australia that degenerated into a bloody fistfight.
The Australian reported on Saturday that the unidentified man was charged with assaulting a 50-year-old driver near the Chevron Island Bridge on the country’s Gold Coast on March 30.
Video captured by a nearby motorist, Cameron Parker, shows the man approaching the man’s car from the driver’s side and swinging a skateboard as the driver opened the door. The two men then start swinging wildly at one another before wrestling to the ground.
“When I saw the guy grab up his skateboard and about to fling it, I mean, I heard the thump from inside my car,” Parker told RTV.
Both men can be seen bleeding after standing back up. The skateboarder approaches Russell’s car, which was stopped behind the fight, before returning to the other driver’s vehicle and breaking one of his taillights.The two men had allegedly gotten into altercations elsewhere along the road that same day.
The suspect is due back in court on April 15.

‘None of this is normal’: Maddow revolted by child sex trafficking charges against Trump pal George Nader
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow connected the dots between the President Donald Trump's administration and George Nader, who served time for child pornography prior to Trump's 2016 campaign and has subsequently been arrested on child sex trafficking charges.
"In what is an astonishingly scandal-ridden presidency, populated by an astonishingly strange cast of characters, he remains one of the most unsettling figures in all of Trump world. Again, to be clear, to disambiguate here, we are not talking about Jeffrey Epstein, seen here with the president, who is also now in custody awaiting child sex trafficking charges," Maddow explained. "No, this is a whole different guy who you can see in this picture with the president who is now in federal custody awaiting a different set of sex trafficking charges as well as serious child porn charges and not for the first time."
Trump ‘will get worse’ because he does not fear Democrats impeaching him: Chairwoman Maxine Waters
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) predicted on Friday that President Donald Trump "will get worse" because of the lack of impeachment proceedings.
Waters, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, was interviewed on MSNBC by Chris Hayes.
"I want to switch gears on the last question here, just to talk about what’s happened over the last several days with the president’s attacks on your colleagues, the chants of 'Send her Back,' which the president sort of very, very tepidly and meekly sort of disavowed yesterday, but then essentially reavowed today when given an opportunity to talk about it, he sort of reembraced his supporters who were chanting that," Hayes noted.
Watch Joy Reid’s epic correction of GOP strategist: ‘This is going to be a white nationalist reelection’
President Donald Trump will continue to attack the four young women of color in Congress known as The Squad, MSNBC anchor Joy Reid predicted on Friday.
Trump has repeatedly used racist attacks to target the four, who are Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
Host Steve Kornacki interviewed Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour about Trump's message.
"So Noelle, for Republicans, again the folks who were getting in touch with [Mike] Pence and saying 'make Trump stop doing this,' do they have to be ready now for the possibility Trump’s going to keep doing these rallies, he wants to run against these four congresswomen in particular, make them the face of the Democratic Party?" Kornacki asked. "If the crowd starts chanting again, 'send her back,' 'send them back,” doesn't stop, is this going to be a feature of Trump rallies from here through 2020?"
