JUDGE FOR YOURSELF!!! He causes an horrific accident and leaves the scene.
Andrew Flanigan was taken into custody about 5:40 p.m. Tuesday and booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, reckless driving and hit- and-run, according to CHP Southern Division Assistant Chief Mark Garrett.
The confrontation and crash, part of which was recorded and went viral on social media, occurred around 5:45 a.m. on the southbound Antelope Valley. Investigators used the video to help zero in on Flanigan within a week after the crash, but did not consider him an ongoing public safety or flight risk and did not arrest him until they felt they had built a significant case.
The video showed the motorcyclist pulling up to the driver’s side of a Nissan sedan in the far left lane of the freeway, then kicking a leg at the vehicle. The driver of the Nissan swerved toward the left, into the motorcyclist, who was pushed toward the center divider, but managed to maintain control of the bike.
The Nissan then swerved to the right, but the driver lost control of the vehicle and swung quickly back to the left, slamming into the center divider in front of the motorcyclist, who slowed to avoid the crash. Flames were briefly seen under the front of the Nissan, which bounced off the divider and swerved back into traffic, broadsiding a white Cadillac SUV, which flipped over and wound up on its roof.
