Pinellas County

CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) – A motorcyclist was arrested for a road rage incident on the Courtney Campbell Causeway back in April.

Investigators say Phillip Scala Jr., 33, claimed he was cut off multiple times on his motorcycle.

According to an arrest affidavit , when traffic was at a standstill, Scala ripped the mirror off a truck and punched the driver side window out.

Scala then allegedly reached into the truck and assaulted the driver.

Scala was cooperative and turned himself in on Wednesday, admitting to investigators he “lost his cool” and was very sorry it had happened.

He was charged with burglary; conveyance occupied and criminal mischief.
