Beware, road ragers. You are being recorded. That's what happened to one driver last week in Honolulu, whose bad behavior behind the wheel was shot on video, uploaded to social media, and went viral in a matter of hours. The driver, who became known as "road rage lady," has reportedly turned herself into police.
Woman turns herself in to police after road rage incident goes viral
Ryan Arakaki, who recorded the video, admits he cut off Kimberly Ong's minivan at a light. That's when Ong lost her shit, following and tailgating Arakaki's car, blaring her horn for several minutes before he pulled over. She then got out of her car, yelled obscenities at him and tried to slap away his cell phone.
Part of the altercation was caught on video:
Here's Arakaki's side of the story:
This lady was looking down at something, maybe on her phone or something else but there was a good car and a half length of free space in front of her so I changed lanes (she was completely still, not moving at all waiting for red light to change). As I made my turn I could hear the lady's horn blaring. I looked in my rear view and I could see she was visibly upset. She continued to tail gate me and follow me closely. She then tried to either overtake me or get on the side of me to try and run me off the road. She did this a few times. I slowly drove the speed limit and made it to a shopping center near by. At this point the lady continued to follow me and I knew she wasn't going to let me go so I took out my phone and started recording her. The following is what happened.
Ong was charged with unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle, a class C felony. She admits that she was "super, super angry" (that is fairly obvious) but she doesn't "totally 100 percent regret it." So... sorry, not sorry.
