A bizarre case of road rage in Florida took an even stranger turn when a pickup driver backed his vehicle onto the car behind it. Ocala police said witnesses reported Adalberto Aponte, 53, was "driving recklessly" in his Toyota Camry before being stopped at a traffic light in Ocala, where he got out of his vehicle to confront the driver of the pickup truck in front of him. Witnesses said Aponte got violent while confronting the 18-year-old driver of the pickup truck, who was accompanied in his vehicle by his girlfriend and their baby. "The guy reaches in the vehicle and starts punching him in the face," a witness reported. Police said the 18-year-old then threw the truck into reverse and parked the vehicle atop Aponte's Camry. Aponte, who was found to have had his license suspended in August for failing to pay child support, was arrested on charges of burglary of an occupied conveyance, battery, driving while license was suspended or revoked, and criminal mischief. The pickup driver was not charged.
