A driver’s wild display of road rage was captured on cellphone video on Monday in Sacramento, California where he is seen repeatedly ramming his SUV into another car before kicking and stomping on the vehicle.
Nikki Guinn was just at home near X Street in Downtown Sacramento when she heard a loud crash piquing her curiosity to check the incident.
When she realized the loud thug was not the result of an accident, she also quickly grabbed her phone and ran outside with it.
It proved to be a wise decision. Her cell phone camera captured 12 minutes of pure chaos. The footage shows a white SUV plowing into a blue car repeatedly. When the car stopped moving, a man gets out and is next seen getting on top of the other car, jumping, stomping and kicking the blue SUV.

An ambulance arrived shortly, followed closely by a Sacramento Police car. Officers initially tried to keep their distance.
Sacramento Police Sgt. Vance Chandler said it was a case of road rage incident on the Capital City Freeway. He said a caller reached them notifying them that there was another driver behind them and that they had been violently rammed by that driver.
The enraged driver rammed his moving car which he focused on the blue car until he falls off the car. That gave the officers the chance and the cue to finally make their move and detain the wild driver.
Guinn is still at a loss as to what could be up with the man to do what he did. She said: “My thought was I witnessed someone’s mental breakdown essentially.”
Police said their investigation indicates that the man was likely under the influence of neurotics.
The authorities have yet to identify him as he was first brought to the hospital for evaluation. Once he is clear for release, he will be booked into jail on felony assault and vandalism charges.
