Hector Herrera, a 24-year-old Florida man, was arrested after he was filmed attacking a driver with a baseball bat in the middle of a highway.
Herrera, 24, was filmed striking 50-year-old Jairo Linarte with a baseball bat in a road rage attack in Miami, Florida on Friday, June 9.
A nearby police officer who was conducting a traffic stop spotted Herrera and Linarte fighting in the street. A nearby motorist recorded the fight and uploaded it to Facebook.

The victim told police Herrera was angry because he didn’t allow him to change lanes in the busy traffic. Herrera then allegedly stopped his car in front of the victim’s vehicle and got out armed with the baseball bat. When he smashed the victim’s right side window, the victim told police he tried to drive off but crashed into Herrara’s car.
Footage of the fight shows the victim jumping out of his vehicle before Herrera charges at him with the bat. Police said the victim was struck on the right shoulder with the bat before the pair started trading blows.
They were filmed punching each other on the road, causing other drivers to try and desperately move out of their way. Police said the two men only stopped when the officer broke them up.
Herrera was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and was booked into jail. He was later released on bond.
