Road rage conflict lands one man in hospital, another in jail

Posted:

Madison (WKOW) -- from Madison PD:  On Saturday evening, Madison Police were called to a local hospital after a road rage incident that had ended with one driver being struck in the head.

  The victim says he was exiting from the West Beltline onto Fish Hatchery Road when the driver of another car tried to pull in front of him.

  The victim said he did not slow down for this other driver, and that the other driver then accelerated some more.

  He said that the other driver cut him off and slammed on his brakes, which caused the victim to do the same.

  The drivers ended up pulling over and getting into a confrontation.

  The Madison police say the two men then got into a physical confrontation, and the victim hit in the head with a weapon the victim described as a police baton.

  The police were not able to recover the weapon, but did arrest 29-year-old Jason M. Humphrey of Cambridge and tentatively charged him with First Degree Reckless Endangering Safety.
