The driver of the Mazda 3 hatchback is 30-year-old Magdiel Medrano-Bonilla and he did not stop after causing the crash. The motorcycle rider, 33-year-old Darin Hendrickson, was left with broken ribs, road rash, and minor abrasions after the car intentionally rammed him.

A family in a vehicle behind Medrano-Bonilla and Hendrickson filmed the dispute with a cellphone for about a mile before the crash occurred. The video soon went viral and helped lead authorities to an arrest.

Medrano-Bonilla was booked into the Sarasota County Jail for aggravated battery causing injury and operating a motor vehicle without a driver's license. His bail was set at $10,000 for operating a motor vehicle without a driver's license but no bail was set for the aggravated battery with injury charge.

Starting at 42 sec the 2 can be seen exchanging words. later on the biker is shaking a fist at the car driver…

While no excuse for the run over. I have to wonder what the words were and about.

Also, you can see the motorcyclist attempt to (and it appears succeed to) punch the guy's car. This is just a normal case of extreme escalation, more and more present in our mad world these days. Civilised behavior is becoming a faint memory, because respect is no longer valued, crime is ignored (and at times rewarded). We are going backwards in terms of relations with our fellow man. Can't say it is a good thing, but from anarchy comes order and we really screwed the proverbial pooch with regards to the directon we have gone. There is no quick and easy fix to the true cause of this symptomatic behavior, at least not one that anyone would like to admit since the middle of the 20th century.
