Motorcyclist Arrested in Road-Rage Incident in Viral Video

An arrest has been made in the road rage incident in Santa Clarita that went viral last year.

California Highway Patrol Assistant Chief Mark Garrett says 45-year-old Andrew Flanigan was booked on three felonies; suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, reckless driving and hit-and-run.

Witnesses, and video recorders, Tim Morrison and Chris Traber explained to KTLA what happened after a silver sedan cut in front of a motorcycle.

The footage showed the motorcyclist apparently kicking the side of the car while both were in the carpool lane. The sedan swerved into the motorcycle, but the rider managed to avoid crashing.

At that point, the car appeared to lose control and struck the median. It then traveled back into traffic and crashed into a passing white Cadillac Escalade, causing the luxury vehicle to overturn and land on its roof.

The Escalade driver received moderate injuries in the rollover crash.

Garrett says Flanigan was identified within a week of the incident, but authorities needed to build a case against him and eventually took him into custody this week.
