Author: Associated Press

MIAMI (AP) – A chain of events following a minor car crash in Miami ended with two men arrested on multiple charges and another in the hospital.

The crash on Thursday involved Brian Boyd and Rovantai Payne – both 20 years old – and 55-year-old Roger Flores. An arrest report indicates that Flores pulled over and Boyd pounded on his window, yelling for him to drive away.

The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/1P4x1EH ) reports that Boyd climbed into the truck’s bed, smashed the rear window, crawled inside and started choking Floyd. Payne grabbed a baseball bat and began hitting Flores.

Boyd and Payne were arrested and Flores was taken to the hospital. Police say that while handcuffed, Boyd struck an officer with his arm.

It’s not clear whether Boyd and Payne have attorneys.
