Police said it all started after he rammed his pickup truck into two vehicles.
He got out and began punching one of the other drivers. He then continued his rampage by hitting other cars.
"He walks past my car, punches my door with the side of his hand, and he's got something else in his other hand," Nina Johns said.
He climbed on top of a moving flatbed and hit the cab with a cutting tool.
