Alleged road rage incident leads to injury, arrest

LINCOLN, Neb. -- A 37-year-old Lincoln man is in custody for an alleged road rage incident.

On Wednesday morning, Lancaster County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a call near S. 14th Street and Saltillo Road. Deputies say that Ronald D. Banse Jr. and another man were driving separate vehicles when there was a traffic incident.

The two drivers both stopped at a nearby gas station, when Banse allegedly got out of his vehicle, walked over to the other driver and punched him while he was still in the driver's seat.

The victim then said he got out the car and took pictures of Banse to report the alleged assault. At that point, deputies say, Banse attempted to drive away, striking the victim and running over the victim's leg. The victim suffered injuries but did not require emergency medical attention.

Banse was arrested for second-degree assault.
