26-year-old Brandon Riley had an altercation with Young Maclean Kirk on I-24 West on January 31st. Officers were working on a separate vehicle wreck near mile marker 57 that had backed up traffic when Riley and Kirk approached them regarding another car accident. Riley told officers he was trying to drive around Kirk but felt like Kirk was brake-checking him. Riley passed Kirk on the left shoulder, leading to a sideswipe collision. Both vehicles pulled over to the right shoulder, where Riley admitted to the police that he grabbed a metal pipe from his car and began hitting Kirk’s car. This left visible damage to the right rear taillight and front passenger door of Kirk’s car. Kirk remained in the vehicle while officers pulled Riley from the scene, detaining him. Riley told officers he had a “rage of emotion” because he believed Kirk was trying to hit his vehicle. Kirk spoke with officers and advised that he was scared for his life when Riley was hitting his car with the pipe. Officers observed the damage, which was estimated to be between $1,000-$2,500. Riley was taken into custody for aggravated assault and vandalism.
