I hope he didn't break her cell phone I am sure she was on when she cut him off. Or maybe mess up her make-up she was applying when it all happened.

From what I can glean from the story, she deserved it!

Either one of the things you mentioned Joseph don't warrant getting punched in the face. I would love to run into you at a redlight after accidentally cutting you off.

He didn't break her nose or try to run her off the road where he could have permenatly disabled her. He did the right thing and should get some sort of medal. Maybe name it the Pelican Rapids/Moorhead Driving Face Tap Reminder Award for Perinnially Rude Drivers.

OK creeps, no matter what she did he has no right to even touch her or she him. We have all done things to others that we wish we could undo. We can get verbal, show some gestures, rant and rave. But contain the rage. Once "touch zone" has been passed then it gets a lot worse right away.
Back a few years ago I was walking with the green light across Robert St when a guy turned right on red and honked his horn at me. That startled me and I sort of froze, his bumper brushed me. I smashed his hood in with one blow sort of trying to get away from the car because he did not stop. A policeman in his squad car saw the whole scene.
The driver got out of his car, came towards me with something like a pipe in his hand. The policeman spoke on the loud speaker for him to put it down. That driver was about 5'6" maybe 140, I am 6'2" about 280. The policeman was right there to stop the crazy guy. Turned out the Mercedes Benz that I had smashed the hood on was stolen, that crazy driver had a load drugs in it, and was wanted in Gary, IN. Look out for the jungle on the roads.

I do not condone this man's actions, however, I am guessing that there is a lot more to this story than is being told. Me thinks that perhaps she may have shared words and/or gestures with this man. I highly doubt that if she accidently cut him off and she politely wave the "sorry" wave, he would have resorted to this behavior. Then again, after reading the paper over the last several weeks, nothing would surprise me. Let them have their day in court. Sadly, even if this woman did provoke this man, he will be the one who ends up paying.

Youthful drivers are inexperienced and often rude. Add a cellphone and you quadruple the problem. Cellphones should be outlawed in moving vehicles. People who can drive fluidly and carefully while talking on a cell would never be noticed. Drivers that speed up erratically, rudely commandeer lane changes, tailgate, and otherwise make a nuisance of themselves would be easy to identify and arrest. Cell companies have a lot of pull, notice the dismmissal of illegal phonetaps in the media yesterday? What makes sense is not always realistic when too much money and influence are applied.

If you're that big you should have pulled the pipe out of his hands and beat the guy senseless. The cop wouldn't have cared.

Where in this story does it say she was on her cell phone? And she deserved this? What is wrong with you people?

Wow, there are a bunch of losers on this board today. People who condone punching persons in the face for such things are the sort that shake babies to death for burping up on their favorite clothes and stomp puppies for peeing on the rug.

She should sue the POS into bankruptcy.

The guy should be executed. He is obviously of the entitlement community. Trash.

The same could be said for male drivers who DON'T signal AND cut people off. Don't generalize, I don't talk on cell phones why driving (including blue tooth), don't read papers (seen men do this), type on computers (seen men do this). I also follow traffic rules (BOTH sexes guilty of breaking them)

The driver was I assume, talking on a cellphone which would at least give her an excuse for rude driving and not just deliberately driving like an ass. What's up with this "you people" thing?

Every day I have to stop myself from doing this to countless women drivers on the road. I'm glad this man punched this woman. They practically kill you on the highway and then flip you off when you raise your arms questioning what on earth they're doing.

And then they pull their cell out as if they are calling the police on you for getting mad that they almost ended your life.

Hats off to this decent man.

I see people every day that come down an entrance ramp and expect everybody to get out of their way. Many times, they don't even bother to look and check if somebody is in the lane they want to merge into.
