A 40-year-old man who spotted his wife driving with another man was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon Tuesday afternoon.
Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies received reports of a road-rage incident near the intersection of Railroad Avenue and Magic Mountain Parkway around 12:30 p.m., according to Lt. Leo Bauer of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
“The family had hired a DJ for an event a couple years ago, and since that time, the husband suspected that the wife had started having an affair with the DJ,” Bauer said.
While driving to the IHOP on Bouquet Canyon Road with his 17-year-old daughter, the husband saw his wife in the car with the DJ, Bauer added.
The suspect then rammed the DJ’s car in the parking lot, and proceeded to follow the vehicle and ram the car again, forcing the victim’s car off the road, according to Bauer.
“The husband then beat him to the ground,” Bauer said.
Deputies arrested the suspect, and he was transported to the SCV Sheriff’s Station jail, according to officials.
The suspect was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon due to allegedy ramming the victim’s vehicle and allegedly punching the victim unconscious, Bauer said, adding the man was also arrested on suspicion of child endangerment as his daughter was believed to be in the passenger seat while he allegedy rammed the vehicle on that side.
Los Angeles County Fire Department officials treated the victim at the scene, but no one was transported to the hospital, according to Supervisor Ed Pickett of the Fire Department.
