PERKINS TOWNSHIP, Ohio — An arrest has been made in what police described as a brutal road rage attack on an elderly man.

According to Perkins Township police, Joshua Herrin, 25, turned himself into authorities Tuesday morning after police visited his place of work.

Herrin is accused of following 73-year-old Patrick Berry on February 19, then attacking him in his driveway.

“I saw him swerving around. I thought he was going to hit me in the rear-end, to tell you the truth. So I just said to him, ‘You’re in a school zone,’ but probably not that nice,” Berry told Fox 8 News.

Police say Herrin grabbed Berry’s jacket before body slamming him onto the pavement.

Berry suffered a broken hand, bruised ribs and a laceration to his head in the alleged attack.

Herrin pleaded not guilty Tuesday morning to charges of aggravated menacing and felonious assault.
