An Arlington man was arrested in a rush hour road rage incident after allegedly punching another driver through an open window.
Two men, driving in separate cars with their windows down, were verbally arguing with one another along South Walter Reed Drive at about 5 p.m. on Sept. 25, according to information the Arlington County Police Department released Thursday.
The cars reached a stop light or stop sign — police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck wasn't sure which — near the intersection of Walter Reed and South Four Mile Run Drive, when one man got out of his vehicle and allegedly began to assault the other.
The victim called police. The other driver, Mohsan Shafqat, whose age is unknown, was found in the area a short time later.
He was arrested and charged with assault and battery, according to police. Shafqat cooperated with authorities, Sternbeck said.
Sternbeck was not sure what the two men were arguing over.
No weapons were used.
The victim did not require medical treatment.
