Our client, a successful entrepreneur and Chartered Accountant, was charged with assault and dangerous driving as a result of a “road rage” incident which took place during rush hour downtown. It was alleged that C.M. took issue with driving of a fellow motorist, exited his vehicle at a red light, punched him and challenged the driver to a fight. When the complainant took off, it was then alleged that the client chased him for several blocks until the police ultimately intervened. C.M. partook in anger management counselling and ultimately resolved the file for a common assault. While jail is the norm for any road rage incident, Mr. Wyman was able to persuade the presiding judge to impose an absolute discharge. This result ensured that the client retained his unblemished criminal record.
