Failure to give the right of way on a roundabout in Prague resulted in a fight between two drivers. They even went at each other with a baton in hand. Even the police had to tear the couple apart.
The incident took place on Wednesday after 3 pm in the capital. The patrol noticed two parked cars and men fighting on the road at the roundabout between Peroutkova and Jinonická streets. One even held a telescopic baton in his hand.
Those in question threatened not only themselves, but also other passing drivers. Therefore, the officers pulled the men apart using their fingers and grips. One of them then threw the baton to a safe distance.
“After calming down, the men agreed that the reason for their conflict was that the 25-year-old driver did not respect traffic signs and did not give way to the other. The 35-year-old man then blocked him with his car, and before the erring driver could apologize, he headed towards his vehicle and with a baton in grabbed him by the neck,” Jiřina Ernestová, spokeswoman for the Prague City Police, described the situation.
The attacked driver, fearing for his health, subsequently began to actively defend himself. “The result was a bruised face, but they both refused medical treatment,” added Ernestová. The policemen who were called evaluated the incident as a misdemeanor. Members of the city police subsequently reported him to the relevant authority.
