PLYMOUTH, Mass. — A “road rage yelling match” turned violent after a Plymouth man allegedly smashed a teen’s head into a steering wheel on Wednesday, authorities say.
Daniel Kenney, 49, of Plymouth was arrested for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (a steering wheel) and assault and battery according to the Plymouth Police Department.
Police say the incident initially started as verbal altercation between Kenney and a 16-year-old, but things quickly got out of hand once Kenney left his car.
Mr. Kenney allegedly punched the teen in the face and began thrashing his body back and forth so the victim’s head was bouncing off the steering wheel, according to officials.
There was no immediate word on the extent of the teen’s injuries and it’s not clear what prompted the altercation.
Plymouth Police are reminding drivers that exiting a vehicle during an incident of road rage is never a good idea.
