Florida man is beaten by bikers after he confronted them on highway

Florida police are searching for a group of bikers captured on camera beating a man in the middle of the road with his own wrench after he confronted them about blocking an intersection. 

Jeremy Harris caught the incident on his dash camera while driving westbound on Pondella Road in North Fort Myers on January 9. 

The bikers were preparing for a ‘street performance’ when they started to block cars on the intersection. 

Harris, who admitted that isn’t blameless in the incident, is heard yelling at the bikers: ‘You guys can’t do this! You can’t f**king block. Get the f**k out of the way!’

The bikers start to leave that particular intersection and are seen riding in front of Harris’ vehicle as he continues driving.  

At one point, Harris clips one of the bikers, prompting the others to race after him. 

When Harris, who said he didn’t mean to clip the rider, comes to a stop behind traffic, the bikers are seen jumping off their motorcycles and running over to his vehicle. 

According to Crime Stoppers, the bikers busted out all of the windows in his vehicle before focusing their attention on him. 

While most of the attack isn’t seen on video, bystanders are seen running over to help and screaming for the bikers to stop. 

The fight then comes into the view of the camera and members of the group can be seen kicking and punching Harris. 

At one point, a man holds up a large wrench (pictured) and appears to hit Harris with it. The man strikes Harris with it a second time before the bikers back off and return to their motorcycles

Crime Stoppers said in a Facebook post that the attackers also beat Harris with their helmets.

In interview with WINK News, Harris admitted that he was also at fault in the incident, saying: ‘Bad decisions all around.’

Harris, who grabbed the wrench before he was attacked, has a license to carry a gun but he decided against pulling his firearm out to scare them off.  

‘I grab the wrench more so to scare them off than to use it, and one of the guys on the bike pulled out a handgun and cocked it,’ Harris told the news station. 

‘I backed off, but before I could get back and turn to my vehicle, they swarmed me.’

Harris said he suffered a fractured skull and needed 15 staples in his head. 

As of Thursday afternoon, police have made no arrests in the road rage incident. 

Anyone with information on the identities of the suspects, are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com.
