(WWJ) There's road rage, and then there's this.
Call it boat rage.
In this incident, a man in a small aluminum boat circled a larger boat on Lake St. Clair this weekend. He comes perilously close before he charges at the larger boat from behind.
"It's OK, it's OK," the woman on the boat says as he approaches. With a solemn face, he keeps coming, speeding up as he nears.
"Stop, stop!" the woman shouts. The man behind the wheel of the small red fishing boat rams into the other one and comes up over the stern, smashing both boats in the process. The driver in plaid shorts shouts one indiscernible thing before speeding away.
The couple who were the victims in this case told WXYZ-TV they were uninjured but their boat suffered extensive damage. Unknown is what could have spurred the sudden act of violence.
The victims called police in the aftermath. Macomb County Sherriff’s deputies arrested Timothy Kennedy of New Baltimore for the incident a short time later.
Kennedy, 39, was arraigned Monday on charges of operating while intoxicated and malicious destruction of property. He was given a $5,000 (10%) bond; He's scheduled to be back in court on July 15.
