Robert Raymond Ramsey reportedly punched out a teen girl's car window, and was caught on videotape.
(ALBANY, Or.) - Linn County Sheriff Bruce Riley reports his deputies have arrested an Albany man for a road rage incident. On March 27, 2014, at approximately 7:00 p.m., the Linn County Sheriff's Office received a call from a 17-year old female reporting someone had just punched and broke the passenger side win dow to her 1995 Mercury Tracer.
The incident occurred in the 2100 block of Old Salem Road, Millersburg. A female passenger, Cheyenne Lea Ford, 18-years old, from Albany, sustained cuts on her face from the broken glass hitting her. Also in the vehicle were friends of the driver, a 17-year old female and a 16- year old male, who both witnessed the incident.
Deputies went to the location and learned the suspect vehicle had stopped in the middle of the road; the male driver exited his vehicle and walked back to the Mercury Tracer. After words were exchanged, the male walked back to his pickup and the car drove around the pickup to leave. As the vehicle passed the male, he lunged toward the car and punched the passenger window of the vehicle with his fist.
Deputies were able to identify Robert Raymond Ramsey, 45-years old from Albany, as the suspect. Deputies were also able to retrieve a surveillance video from a local business which aided in the investigation.
Deputies arrested Ramsey on March 31 at approximately 11:00 p.m. and took him to the Linn County Jail. Ramsey was charged with Assault IV, Criminal Mischief II, Reckless Endangering and Disorderly Conduct II.
Sheriff Riley would like to remind the public that aggressive or reckless driving often leads to road rage incidents, which potentially can end in violent encounters. Please be courteous to others and avoid contact with aggressive drivers. Using obscene gestures and words will often make matters worse. Always protect yourself by keeping your doors and windows locked. Try to avoid stopping or confronting an aggressive driver. If an aggressive driver confronts you, call 9-1-1 or drive to the nearest law enforcement agency or other safe area.
