YUMA, Ariz. — Motorcyclists are often portrayed as the bad guys in road-rage incidents, but a biker in Arizona is being hailed as the good guy after fending off an angry attack — with his helmet cam rolling.
Sometimes road rage is a one-way street, and in this case a motorcyclist and his girlfriend were on the receiving end earlier this month in Yuma, Ariz.
51-year-old Lee Schismenos followed Cody Munoz and his girlfriend to a red light, and after taking a couple of swings, the older man got taken down.
The officer who responded said he smelled alcohol on Schismenos’s breath. He admitted he had 4 to 5 shots of whiskey.
Police say Schismenos potentially faces charges ranging from DUI to assault. He was treated at the hospital for a broken ankle and abrasions on his knuckles.
A video of the incident was uploaded to YouTube and it already has more than 9 million views. Many commenters have written in support of Munoz.
