Mr. Neumann, 54, was arrested and booked on assault and battery charges last Tuesday after smacking another driver around at an Oklahoma City red light. He apparently thought the 26 year old woman had cut him off.
The victim, a 26-year-old Oklahoma City woman, told police she was driving her car east on the Northwest Expressway about 6:40 p.m. Tuesday when she stopped at the light at Council Road, the report states. She saw a red pickup swerve to miss her, and a man jumped out and ran to her window.
The man cursed at her and shouted, "Don't you ever cut me off," as he started to hit and choke her through her open window, according to the report. Police at the scene said she had red marks and scratches on her neck, and officers who took pictures of her injuries hours later at a hospital said her left eye was black and swelling.
The victim told police she could hear a child saying, "Daddy, stop," and asking the man to come back to their pickup, the report states.
