ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Southern California authorities have arrested a man they say climbed onto a woman’s car and smashed her windshield with his fist in an apparent fit of road rage.

Police say 28-year-old Joshua Dalton of Anaheim was arrested Friday near his Anaheim home.

The woman said she was leaving a parking lot with her two daughters and a friend in her car Tuesday when a white Jeep began tailgating her and driving erratically.

The driver finally pulled in front, forcing her to stop.

Cellphone video shows the driver getting out, jumping on the hood of the car and smashing the windshield with his fist before driving off.
