LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.- A fit of road rage turned violent in Lee County when a driver punched a man in the face.

Authorities say the victim was driving along Staley Road on Nov. 18, when he passed a maroon Kia Sedona driving slowly. When the victim later stopped at a traffic sign at the intersection of Staley Road and Orange River Boulevard, the driver of the Kia, identified as Michael Roskov, pulled up behind the victim, got out of his car and started walking to the victim’s drivers side door.

Authorities say Roskov cursed at the victim through a rolled down window, then punched the driver in the face, got back into his car and drove away.

Roskov now faces charges of burglary with battery. Lee County authorities say Roskov turned himself in Wednesday afternoon.
