EDMONTON - An Edmonton man has been charged in what police are calling a road rage incident.

Police say two vehicles almost collided in a downtown intersection on Thursday morning.

Words were exchanged between the drivers, then both got out and started physically fighting.

One of the men allegedly got a baseball bat from his vehicle and hit the other man with it.

A passing sheriff saw what was happening and took one of the men into custody.

Alaa Al-Thehaiby, 27, is charged with assault, assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.

Police said a 56-year-old man who was hit with the bat had minor injuries.
