Washington State’s King County Sheriff’s Office released footage on August 9 showing the moment a road rage suspect hurled a tool through the window of a vehicle during an incident in Shoreline.

A Washington state driver hurled an a hammer through the window of a vehicle in a horrifying, road rage incident that was caught on camera.

The incident involved a driver of a Jeep who began honking at another vehicle as they both tried to merge onto a ramp onto Interstate 5, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

“As they traveled northbound, the Jeep’s driver continued to honk so our victim took the Ballinger Way exit to avoid a freeway confrontation,” authorities said.

“Only moments later the Jeep passes him, blocks the roadway and the driver hurls a hammer before fleeing.”

Authorities were able to identify the Jeep driver from additional surveillance video.

The suspect, who has not been identified, had been arrested on unrelated charges after fleeing deputies three days after the incident, authorities said.

“It’s easy to find – and charge – a suspect when they are already [in] jail,” authorities said.

Authorities said that charges are still pending, but “once filed our hammer-thrower should be off our roads for some time.”
