Authorities say a Washington Township man hit another motorist's vehicle with a machete and shouted racial slurs during a road rage incident.
According to police, Michael Roller, 29, has been charged with bias intimidation, criminal mischief, aggravated assault, terroristic threats and multiple weapons offenses.
Authorities say the confrontation began Tuesday around 5:40 p.m. when Roller started throwing objects at the other driver's car.
Both Roller and the other driver then pulled into a store parking lot.
Roller got out of his car and allegedly began hitting the other vehicle with a machete as he shouted the slurs.
Authorities say Roller then ran into the rear yard of a nearby home where he was soon taken into custody.
It wasn't known Wednesday if Roller has retained an attorney.
