A guy in Sacramento turned his SUV into a battering ram, repeatedly bashing another car. He eventually got out of his SUV to climb atop the target of his anger and stomped his way around it. Eventually the rage-filled driver slipped and was apprehended. Police didn’t try to get the road-rager off the car — they recognized he was “in crisis” and waited for him to come down. Video of the incident is both funny and sad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9z1sE6CGRVw&feature=youtu.be&goal=0_c01849cdd6-5326ba062f-264008501
