CHICAGO -- A case of road rage caused one man to be arrested and now charged.

The whole incident was caught on camera.

Police said it all started with a minor accident on Sheridan, near Loyola’s campus. When one driver refused to stop, the other went after him and created an unbelievable scene at the real estate office right across the street on West Morse in Rogers Park.

This incident of road rage played out over six minutes, about a week and a half ago.

Surveillance video showed the driver of a Toyota Camry get out of his car, and start kicking the driver side door of the black Audi in front of him.

The driver of that Audi was identified by police as real estate broker Martin Vigil.

Vigil then put his car in reverse and rams into the Camry twice. He then circled back around and plowed his car head-on into the Camry twice.

Vigil came around again and nearly ran over the man, as he continued to kick and beat Vigil’s Audi.

The other man got what appeared to be a shovel out of his trunk to go after Vigil.

Erickson Ocasio saw the whole thing from his real estate office.

It was also caught on his surveillance cameras.

As it turns out, Ocasio knows Martin Vigil, the driver of the Audi.

Vigil was a former employee of Ocasio’s.

Ocasio told WGN after Vigil assaulted the other man in the blue scrubs, Vigil then went after him.

Vigil was charged with misdemeanor assault, among other misdemeanor charges.
