Rapack said he stopped in fear of his life, and a verbal argument ensured over use of the road.

“Mr. Brocato then walked to the side of the motorcycle and grabbed Joel by his shirt and left chest, pushed him, and knocked him and the motorcycle to the ground. Mr. Brocato told Joel to stay put that he called law enforcement.

“Joel got up and ran to Ms. Anderson’s house to call the sheriff’s office and make sure an officer was coming because he was afraid Mr. Brocato was going to hurt him and he wanted to press charges,” Jones wrote.

Brocato was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and battery, and taken to the Franklin County Jail.
