Actor and comedian Chevy Chase said he was kicked during a road rage fight near the new Tappan Zee Bridge, officially the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, two weeks ago. "It was an old guy yelling - something we couldn't hear - super pissed-off".

"My friend opened his window and just said, 'I apologize, we were just trying to go upstate, '" he said, adding that Chase's Mercedes blocked their vehicle.

"You know who the f**k I am?"

Landrio said Chase weaved in and out of traffic to pursue his vehicle. "Then he started cursing at me for no reason and said, 'I am going to ruin your lives!' I said, 'F- you!'" Landrio said Chase screamed.

Comic actor Chevy Chase, best known for his time on SNL, got into something of a vehicular mishap in upstate NY last week which ended with a 22-year-old allegedly kicking him in self defense as Chase yelled "I am going to ruin your lives!" "I said, "Get the f- away from me!'"

CJI to take final call on Bench vs Bench
Justice Arun Mishra was then in the centre of a controversy as they objected to putting the Loya death case before him. But on February 8th three-judge bench was critical of a verdict passed by a top court bench in 2014.

Chase is basically inside the vehicle at this point, then attempted a punch and missed.

"If I were a lot younger I'd bust your nose", the actor said he told the passenger before he was kicked in the shoulder and fell to the ground, TMZ reported.

"I didn't know who he was - I was just trying to defend myself".

Chase realized no damage had been done to either vehicles but chose to still approach the driver to "speak to him about his reckless driving" and one of the driver's three passengers gave him an offensive hand gesture.

Landrio was arrested and was charged with harassment in the second degree.
