LAPD makes arrest after alleged road-rage attack in North Hollywood

Local News

Police arrested a suspect after a video surfaced online showing a vehicle appearing to intentionally ram another in an apparent act of road rage in North Hollywood.

The incident unfolded Monday evening in the area of Victory and Laurel Canyon boulevards, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Video footage of the crash was posted to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. It showed a white car with its driver-side door wide open, pushing a pickup truck through an intersection. Following the initial crash, the white car is seen chasing after the pickup truck before a second collision.

The social media post did not go unnoticed by the Los Angeles Police Department, which responded to the tweet, asking the person who posted the video to send a message including the time and location of the incident.

Some online sleuths were able to correctly determine the location based on the footage.

Just over two hours later, about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, LAPD announced a suspect had been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the crash. Further details, including the suspect’s identity, were not available Tuesday night.

Correction: An earlier version of this article indicated the incorrect day when the suspect was arrested. Police had not at the time of publication said when the arrest occurred, but on Wednesday indicated he was arrested Monday night.
