CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) — A CBS 17 viewer sent in photos of a road rage incident at a Clayton McDonald’s that landed a man in jail.
Brandon Michael Gonzalez Rubio has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and injury to personal property following the incident over the weekend.
The incident happened at the McDonald’s on U.S. 70 in Clayton Saturday.
Police said Gonzalez Rubio initially caused the frustration. He was in line in the drive through and refused to move.
Several cars started honking, but he wasn’t deterred, police said.
Then police said a woman got out of the line, pulled up beside Gonzalez Rubio and told him he was holding up the line.
Witnesses told police Gonzalez Rubio responded with an expletive, officials said.
Just after that is when police said that woman drove in front of him. In response, he rammed her car, according to police.
Photos provided to CBS 17 appear to show a car hitting the side of a second vehicle.
Witnesses said Gonzalez Rubio then got out and started yelling, kicking and hitting her car.
When questioned by police, investigators said Gonzalez Rubio tried to blame the crash on the woman, claiming she tried to cut him off and collided with his car.
No one was injured.
The witness who provided the photos to CBS 17 said they believed Gonzalez Rubio was working for a food delivery service at the time of the incident.
