Rush hour rage: Man goes beserk September 28, 2011

A man who claimed to be an employee from the Tampa Airport Post Office is accused of letting out a little road rage after work Monday afternoon.

According to a Criminal Report Affidavit, 54-year-old Ross Urso of Tampa told police he was tired of “getting run off the road” and decided to take matters into his own hands.

His traffic tantrum wasn’t over yet: Urso then allegedly got on top of his car and began jumping from car to car and even tried to direct traffic.

Tampa Police finally caught up shortly after 7:30, but he wasn’t ready to give up yet.   He’s accused of stabbing an officer with his car keys before he was finally taken to the ground.

Why did this 54-year-old do it?
