Suspect Arrested in Connection to Series of Road Rage Attacks in SoCal
Authorities in southern California have arrested the primary suspect in connection to a recent series of brazen road rage attacks.
In a media release to Facebook, the Central Los Angeles division of the California Highway Patrol identified the suspect as 36-year-old Nathaniel Walter Radimak.
Radimak was arrested on Sunday, January 29, in relation to alleged assaults committed on January 11 in Los Angeles, on State Route 2 near York Boulevard. The incidents were captured on dashcam video and submitted to law enforcement by citizens, which led to Radimak’s arrest, the CHP said.
The road rage attacks were the subject of much media and internet attention. The suspect, believed to be Radimak, has been captured on cellphone and dashcam video on multiple occasions, erratically driving a grey Tesla Model X, accosting other drivers, and occasionally stopping his car on the road, getting out, and battering other cars with a metal pipe. He would then get back into his own car and drive off.
Radimak was booked at the Los Angeles Police Department jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and two outstanding warrants, with bail set at $5,175,000.
