Road rage cited in assault on driver at red light in Wesley Chapel


Road rage cited in assault at red light

A 23-year-old man is accused of punching a driver at a red light in a road rage incident.

Kenny Diaz Colon was arrested Tuesday and charged with burglary with assault or battery. Authorities say Colon, on July 14, was a passenger in a car that was stopped at a red light at State Road 56 and Meadow Pointe Boulevard in Wesley Chapel. Colon is accused of getting out of the car, punching the driver of another vehicle and running back to the car before it sped away. A Pasco Sheriff's Office report does not state why Colon was enraged at the other driver.

"The incident resulted from some type of road rage," the report states.

Colon worked at Wendy's in Wesley Chapel and wore his uniform with his name tag at the time of the assault, the Sheriff's Office said. The 47-year-old victim recorded the attack on his cell phone, the report states.

Colon, of 6107 Sand Key Lane in Wesley Chapel, was held in Pasco County Jail on Wednesday in lieu of $25,000 bail.
