Sarasota Sheriff Video captured a road rage incident in Sarasota Fla. where a driver intentionally rams a motorcyclist off the road

The motorcyclist seen on video during a Sarasota road rage incident suffered broken bones and is recovering as deputies continue to track down the driver who shoved him off the road Sunday afternoon.

Anyone with information on the driver or the incident is urged to call the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office at 941-861-4317.

Described as an "aggravated battery", police need help finding the vehicle and driver. "One of the witnesses recorded the hit and run on his cell phone".

The video then shows the motorcyclist hit the auto with his hand before the driver swerves, colliding with the motorcyclist and causing him to crash on the side of the road.

A short investigation led investigators to Brandon Heath, 31, of Haverhill, who was parked near Sears at the Mall at Rockingham Park with two "realistic looking BB guns", police said.


Detectives are hoping that by sharing the video, someone can identify the suspect's vehicle.

Video captured a road rage incident in Sarasota, Fla., where a driver intentionally rams a motorcyclist off the road, April 8, 2018. "Before the video started he threw a quarter or change and hit me and my motorcycle and put some damage to the motorcycle".

According to reports, Hendrickson was taken to hospital after suffering a knee injury and possible fractured ribs.

"What I'm doing, I'm essentially trying to follow him until we get to a stopping point", said Hendrickson. After the incident, he pleads with a family to chase the suspect auto.

The vehicle has a large white decal on its back window.
