'Raging' Drivers; Biting and Huffing

Road rage got the better of a 20-year-old Barrington man late Wednesday morning, May 23, after he allegedly pounded on the roof of a car driven by a woman with a baby in the back seat after he thought she cut him off at an intersection.

Both vehicles pulled off County Road in Barrington into the Police Cove parking area. While the woman was contacting the police, the man allegedly ran up to her vehicle and began pounding on the roof while yelling at her. Several police patrol cars raced to police cove, police said. 

The man allegedly ran off into the nearby residential neighborhood after seeing the approaching patrol cars. He was caught within minutes in the backyard of a nearby house.
