Winston was able to post a $1,500 bail and has since been released from custody. As of this reporting, legal proceedings are ongoing, and further details are awaited.

The incident serves as a stark reminder of the unpredictability of road rage and the potential consequences of aggressive driving behavior. Local authorities are urging drivers to exercise caution, patience, and respect on the roads to avoid similar incidents in the future.
