High-Speed Motorcycle vs. Car Road Rage Battle Caught On Tape

The fast and furious idiots were filmed weaving in and out of lanes and driving on the wrong side of the road.

Terrifying video shows a car repeatedly trying to run a motorcyclist off Florida roads in an extreme road rage battle.

The dangerous game of cat and mouse reportedly hit speeds of more than 90 mph Monday in Homestead as the motorcyclist tried to escape the other driver.

At one point the cyclist is seen dodging cars in the opposite lane of traffic as the red Ford Fusion follows parallel on the other side.

"I'm just like, 'Man, I'm on a motorcycle. My life is literally in your hands,'" Rone Gonzalez, 23, who was operating the bike and helmet cam, told WSVN.

Gonzalez said he was heading to work when the other driver cut him off, causing him to lose his cool.

He's seen making crude hand gestures at the other driver. At one point, he smacks the car’s side-view mirror.

The other driver, identified by police as 30-year-old Kristiian Rosa, is seen weaving in and out of lanes ahead of the cyclist. He appears to lean out of his car to try spitting on the cyclist and even tries to hit him with his arm.

Homestead police say the car's driver later reported the motorcyclist.

“He came into the police department and filed a police report stating that there was minor damage to his vehicle ... from when the driver slapped his side mirror,” Police Detective Fernando Morales told the Huffington Post Wednesday.

Morales called it a case of “poor decision making” by both drivers. After an investigation by their traffic department, both men were called into the police department and arrested Wednesday afternoon.

Gonzalez faces a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving. Rosa also faces a reckless driving charge, as well as felony aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, Morales said.

Gonzalez struggled to explain his behavior.

"It was a stupid move," he told WSVN prior to his arrest. 

Rosa seemed to share that sentiment in a text to a local TV station:

"It only takes a second for an accident to happen yet we both took no consideration over (sic) our loved ones or the people around us at the time. Lesson learned."

This story has been updated to include both drivers' arrest.
