Road Rage Ends in Arrest

Early morning commuter road rage on Highway 101 led to an arrest on Milpas Street last week. Idelberto Martinez, 23, of Ventura was charged with suspicion of DUI, driving without a license, and resisting arrest. He allegedly engaged a fellow motorist in a potentially deadly game of cat-and-mouse at high speed, eventually tailing the victim to his workplace on Milpas to hurl physical threats.
