Authorities are asking for help to identify a man caught on camera instigating a road rage incident in NW Houston.

Harris County Constable Precinct 4 investigators are looking into a case of suspected road rage. The incident happened shortly after midnight on July 21 in the Willowbrook neighborhood between drivers inside a GMC truck and a Volkswagen sedan.

In video shared exclusively with Eyewitness News, you can see the GMC truck barreling down the wrong side of the road. The driver got out of his vehicle and appears to hold his hands as if he's aiming a gun. The GMC driver then slammed his fists on the Volkswagen's hood.

You can hear a man say, "Really? Stop. Stop. Stop. Will you stop? What the (expletive); are you doing? You (expletive) psycho. I've got you on camera. Get the (expletive) away from me. Jesus Christ."

A road rage incident in northwest Houston turned violent this morning, and the entire altercation was caught on camera.

On Friday morning, the man who shot the video spoke with Steve Campion. He wanted Eyewitness News to use just his first name for safety concerns.

Mike told us the incident started at W. Greens Road and Cutten Road. He said the truck blew through a red light, so he honked his horn. The situation escalated into tailgating and then ended with the encounter caught on camera.

"He had jumped a curb, driven over a patch of grass, was now in oncoming traffic, and racing towards me. If he didn't slam on his brakes, it looked like he was going to roll over my car," said Mike. "He murdered me with imaginary bullets and then beat my car up ... all over me interfering with his ability to run a red light, it's foolish."

Mike posted the video on the website Within hours, Internet users dissected the footage and provided information to Mike. He wants help identifying the man in the video for law enforcement.

"Yeah, the power of Reddit, the Internet and video. I'm going to be getting a dashboard camera for myself and for my wife because she drives my kids around," said Mike.

"Without the video, first of all, none of this would have gotten any attention. I'm pretty sure. You have to see how this guy acts in order to believe it and be terrified like I was," Mike added. "I'm real confident we're going to get this guy."
