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.

After Tuesday's impeachment testimony, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) tried to defend President Donald Trump's Ukraine scheme to a CNN panel — and was reduced to shouting about former Vice President Joe Biden as his co-panelists tore down his arguments.
"Every one of the people there had the same thing, which is to change the Obama policy, which was leaving Ukrainians without any way to defend themselves ... we have [Trump] in there and fighting for Ukraine and now the Democrats are saying, well, this is wonderful, BUT..."
"Let me just ask you the question," said former Obama strategist David Axelrod. "Because this lethal aid has been important, it gives them quite a bit of leverage, the president, if he wants them."

WATCH: Dejected Devin Nunes slumps back in his chair after he fails to yield his time to Elise Stefanik
The top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee was visibly frustrated after once again getting shut down while attempting a parliamentary maneuver.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been attempting to ignore the rules governing the impeachment inquiry so that he can yield Republicans' time to fellow members of Congress, instead of just the professional GOP counsel.
Nunes has attempted to yield time to Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who has been raising re-election funds off of her outbursts in the hearings.
Once again, Nunes attempted to yield his time to a fellow Republican and once again Nunes was told that is against the rules.
