CATAWBA COUNTY, N.C. — A pastor in Catawba County is accused of beating a man with a cane in a fit of road rage.

Police said Pastor Roger Lee used his cane to strike another driver at the Hardee’s drive-thru.

The road rage began when Lee became irate after being passed on Highway 127 after coming to an abrupt stop.

Alexis Zimmerman, who was working in the drive-thru at the time of the incident, told WSOC she tried to stop the attack.

Both Lee and the other driver, Santos Ruiz — who went to the hospital after the attack — were charged with simple affray.
