A case of road rage allegedly ended in a physical altercation earlier this week.

Daniel Kenney, from Plymouth, was arrested for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (steering wheel) and assault and battery after the road rage yelling match concluded with him allegedly hitting the 16-year-old driver of the other car in the face, the Plymouth Police Department posted on Facebook Thursday.

“Traffic is getting worse. People sometimes make driving mistakes,” the post reads. “It’s easy to get upset about other people’s driving, and if it’s bad enough, you can always report it to the Police…  But doing anything else, including arguing, or exiting a vehicle is NEVER worth it.”
