SeaTac road rage and assault case wrapped up
information from the City of SeaTac
On the evening of September 18, deputies received a call about an injured male in the roadway. The male was found with a laceration above his eye, ripped pants, and his safety vest about 20 feet away. The victim couldn’t tell the responding officers what happened, and he was transported to the hospital.
Several hours later, a different male called in to report an assault that came from a road rage incident. Officer Myklebust responded and contacted the male driver, who explained what happened and provided in-car video he had of the incident. The male driver said he may have “hit” the other person with his car when he was trying to leave. Officers were able to ascertain that the disoriented male found earlier on the ground the same person involved in the road rage incident.
After reviewing the video and speaking with the male victim, Detective Fowler arrested the suspect/ driver of the vehicle who is being charged with Felony Assault.
