Rogers man arrested in road rage incident
BENTONVILLE — A Rogers man was in the Benton County Jail on Tuesday in connection with a road rage incident that resulted in a stabbing earlier this month, according to police.
Victor Miguel CollazoRamirez, 19, was arrested Friday in connection with battery. His bond was set at $20,000.
Rogers police were called at 8:16 p.m. July 10 to Mercy Hospital about an incident at South First Street and Post Road.
Cesar Santillan told police he got into a fight with another driver and was stabbed by the man, according to court documents. Police were able to identify the other driver as CollazoRamirez.
Santillan told officers he was driving on Laura Street toward Kirksey Middle School to play soccer. Santillan said the driver of a green Chevrolet Avalanche was headed in the opposite direction, and he started to yell at Santillan, according to the affidavit.
Santillan told police he was headed home when CollazoRamirez pulled up next to him at Second and Necessary streets and yelled at him. Santillan said he continued home and realized Collazo-Ramirez was following him. Santillan told police Collazo-Ramirez parked behind him in the driveway, according to the affidavit.
Santillan and CollazoRamirez got out of their cars and began to fight. Santillan told police he thought Collazo-Ramirez had a phone in one of his hands, but Santillan realized he was bleeding after the fight, according to the affidavit.
Santillan had a laceration on his left forearm and a smaller cut on his left upper back. Santillan had to have reconstructive surgery on his arm, according to court documents.
Santillan’s 17- year- old daughter told police she saw what appeared to be a knife with a dark blade in CollazoRamirez’s hand.
Police were able to identify Collazo-Ramirez after they learned he bragged about the incident on social media, according to the affidavit.
Prosecutors haven’t filed a formal charge against CollazoRamirez. His arraignment is scheduled for 8 a.m. Aug. 21 in Benton County Circuit Judge Robin Green’s court.
