According to police, a road rage incident between an Acworth man and a Kennesaw man landed both men in custody after a roadside brawl broke out during morning rush hour May 15.

Police say Harry W. Underwood of Kennesaw failed to yield while turning left from Stanley Road onto US Highway 41/Cobb Parkway, which caused another motorist to brake hard to avoid collision.

According to an arrest warrant, Underwood is charged with the misdemeanor offenses of following too closely, aggressive driving and fighting in public.

According to an arrest warrant, co-defendant Jason Timmons of Acworth was charged with the same misdemeanor crimes.

Timmons was accused by Underwood of tailgating, which is why police said Underwood braked hard in the intersection.

According to police, Timmons purposefully followed too closely and blew his vehicle’s horn repeatedly after Underwood pulled out in front of Timmons.

Police say the verbal fight continued when Timmons exited his vehicle and the men engaged in a closed-fist fight, where both men were swinging. The two men are in custody, with each held on $2,000 bond.
