A McSherrystown man has been identified as the person who punched a fellow driver during an apparent road-rage incident in West Manchester Township two months ago.

Davious Lamont King, 35, of 201 South St., is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, accidents involving damage to an attended vehicle, reckless driving and failing to stop and provide information or render aid.

West Manchester Township Police said King punched York resident Richard W. Beyer in the face after Beyer heeded King's gesture for him to pull over.

Beyer, who was 62 at the time, was treated at York Hospital for his injuries, police said.

Beyer was eastbound on the Route 30 bypass near Carlisle Road about 1:50 p.m. June 10 and was involved in a dispute over "lane positioning" with a black Hummer allegedly driven by King, police said.

Crash, then punch: A minor crash ensued, after which both Beyer and King pulled over, according to police.

That's when King punched Beyer in the face, knocking him to the ground, according to police, who said King then took off.

Police said people who witnessed the incident helped investigators figure out what happen.

King was identified following a traffic stop, according to police, who did not say when or where that happened.

King was arraigned Aug. 2 and remains free on $25,000 unsecured bail, police said. His preliminary hearing is set for 2 p.m. Sept. 12 before District Judge Daniel Garber, according to court records.
