Axe evens odds in road rage-related brawl

Delayed road rage left one man seriously injured and another behind bars on Tuesday. Police said the suspect was headed home from work when clipped by a duo on a motorbike.

Enraged, he cursed at the men, who quickly wheeled about, approached the suspect and kicked him before fleeing.

As luck would have it, when the suspect finally neared his home, he saw the pair in a coffee shop with eight friends.

He began chucking stones at the diners, who promptly rushed him. Outnumbered, he produced an axe, which he used to strike one of his attackers.

He’ll explain the convoluted incident to a judge. DEUM AMPIL
