This week in California, 52-year-old Mark Gordon, was charged with assault after a video captured him attempting to run over a photographer with his SUV.
Los Angeles photographer Alex Stone posted a video to YouTube and Facebook last week. In the video, Stone explains how he and his team were in the process of taking photos on a public road in San Diego County when they were suddenly approached by a man driving a Ford SUV, who demanded that he leave.
Why don’t you go f*cking take pictures of your own f*cking street?” Gordon shouts at the photographer in the video.
“We’ll be out of here in a second, sir,” Stone replies.
At that point, the driver can be seen throwing his vehicle in reverse along with the audible sound of tires screeching, as the driver whips the SUV around to face Stone and his team. Visible on the SUV’s back bumper is a sticker that reads, “No Hillary.”
Move your shit!” Gordon warns.
“Whoa! Okay! Hold on there, sir!” Stone shouts back.
Gordon floors the large SUV as Stone jumps out of the way just in time.
“Calm down, please,” Stone pleads.
Gordon once again whips his vehicle around to take another pass at Stone. However, this time, the driver manages to miss barely hitting the photographer and his team.
You’re in my f*cking driveway!” Gordon rants. “Do you not understand that, d*ck head?
Stone attempts to explain that he and his staff will leave, but Gordon blocks their path with his SUV.
As soon as I slap the f*cking piss out of ya!” Gordon exclaims.
Gordon exits his vehicle and tries to assault one of the members of Stone’s photography team.
Before returning to his SUV to leave the scene, Gordon slaps the cell phone out of Stone’s hand.
You’re going to have to pay for my phone,” Stone insists
According to Stone, after the recording cut out, Gordon pulled down his pants and told him:
Suck those $200 out of my dick.
The Romona Sentinel reported on Monday that authorities arrested Gordon and charged him with felony assault with a deadly weapon, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor vandalism.
Gordan’s bail was set at $30,000. He scheduled for arraignment for July 13.
By Tuesday Stone’s video had been viewed over 500,000 times.[ad3media campaign=”193″ youtube=”97hfxth3aas”]
