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.

WATCH: Ana Navarro keeps shouting down Trump booster — even as CNN host cuts to commercial
President Donald Trump cheered on his top Hispanic advisor Steve Cortez, who appeared before a New Mexico audience. Trump asked Cortez which he loved more, Hispanics or America, which prompted CNN's Ana Navarro to blast the president for racism. Meanwhile, Trump's latest CNN shill cried "political correctness."
"Look, I suspect he didn't want to offend Steve Cortez and I suspect Steve Cortez was not offended," Navarro said. "But really what a stupid thing to say. Right? To somehow ask the question about whether you love the country more than you love Hispanics -- they are one and the same."
‘I thought he was joking’: CNN’s Cuomo didn’t buy Spicer’s humble brag about being a ‘staunch Christian’
During the Tuesday night "hand-off" between CNN's Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, the two chuckled about former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who made his "Dancing with the Stars" debut Monday night. Spicer bragged about being a "staunch Christian," as the reason for why he won't win "Dancing with the Stars." But Cuomo chastised Spicer for trying to score votes.
Trump adviser ties his tongue in knots trying to explain away the president’s anti-Hispanic racism
On Monday night, President Donald Trump received heavy criticism after a rally in New Mexico in which he turned to one of his Hispanic advisers, Steve Cortes, said he "looks more like a WASP than I do," and asked him "Who do you like more, the country or the Hispanics?"
Talking with CNN's Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, Cortes was completely undeterred from going to bat for Trump against accusations of racism.
"Forget about how he put what he put to you last night. He's not the greatest wordsmith. It was a little clumsy, you recognize that, none of that matters to me," said Cuomo. "Here's what matters to me. How can the Latino community believe that he loves them when he has said so many anti-Mexican and even anti-Puerto Rican things, how can he love Latinos when she's shown such animosity?"
