BEND, OR -- A La Pine man was arrested Tuesday morning, following an alleged road rage incident on Highway 97.
State Police investigators say 25-year-old Brandon Kern was tailgating and otherwise driving aggressively near Lava Butte, when he rear-ended another vehicle, just before 6 a.m. The two vehicles pulled over, presumably the exchange information. Kern reportedly charged the other driver and punched him several times in the face.
He then left the scene and was later arrested at his place of employment. The other driver, a 24-year-old Sunriver man, sustained minor injuries.
OSP asks any witnesses to the incident to give them a call at 503-375-3555.
