Incident Report for Case #2019-469575

Incident Type

Traffic incident/Road Rage

Incident Date

11/12/2019 - 4:15 PM


1000 block Colby St.


Ebony L. McCarty, age 29, Madison
McCarty was arrested for battery.


Cold weather road rage led to a man being punched several times in the face as he attempted to get his dead car jumped on Colby Street yesterday afternoon. A friend had come to help him, and between their two cars, the roadway was pretty much blocked. This upset another motorist who began shouting at the men to get out of the way so that she could drive through. The car that was being used to jump the other was moved, so she could get past. But it appears some words were exchanged in the moment. This led to the woman getting out of her car and striking the stranded driver. He responded by kicking at her, trying to create space, he said. The woman claimed the man was to blame for the disturbance, but an independent witness supported his statements to police.
