This ugly road rage incident by a popular Illinois comedian is no laughing matter.

Road Rage Is No Joke

I believe we all have our bad moments when driving. Another person behind the wheel can make an inappropriate move that rubs us the wrong way and the natural reaction is to get angry. Some drivers will take serious offense and it could elevate to a road rage incident. That's when it gets scary because you don't know exactly what people are capable of.

Illinois Police Receive Report Of Road Rage Incident

According to, 

Police in Elmhurst received several calls about two cars stopped in the middle of the road on Route 83 which is a very busy street. When they arrived at the scene, the suspect had already taken off. The victim reported that an unknown man got out of his car to confront him. He then spits all over his window and then punched it. He started screaming at the unsuspecting driver. Here's his obscenity-filled tirade.

According to, 

"You little p----," Antonacci said. "Get out of the f------ car."

The 27-year-old said, "What's your f------ problem?"

Antonacci continued, "I'll f------ rip your f------ head off, you little f------ p----. You're gonna learn a lesson about f------ with the wrong guy.
