Clintonville: Driver catches road rage on cellphone video

An apparent incident of road rage was reported last week at Henderson Road and North High Street.

A woman told Columbus police she was threatened by another woman at 8:30 a.m. April 17 at the intersection.

The victim said she was driving behind a COTA bus when another motorist forced her way into the travel lane.

The victim said she honked her horn after being forced to slam on her brakes, which prompted the other driver to get out of her car and bang on the hood of the victim's vehicle. The woman said she took video of the incident with her cellphone.
