A San Gabriel Valley road rage incident in which the drivers allegedly tried to use a baseball bat and a machete as weapons resulted in three arrests Tuesday, authorities said.
San Gabriel resident Hong Ki Yoon, 51, and Montebello resident Jose Enrique Guido, 34, were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Yoon and Guido were driving North on Garfield Avenue into Monterey Park when one driver cut the other off, Alhambra Police Sgt. Gerald Johnson said.
The drivers were saying things to eachother and cutting eachother off, police said.
The situation escalated when Christina Estrada, a 29-year-old passenger in Guido’s car, threw a cup of soda onto Hong Ki Yoon’s vehicle, Johnson said.
The two drivers then got out of their vehicles on Beacon Street. Yoon had a baseball bat and Guido had a machete.
Officers responded and detained the men and woman at gunpoint. Guido and Yoon were arrested without incident, but Estrada fought with officers.
Estrada was arrested for battery on a police officer, resisting an officer, and throwing a beverage at a car, police said.
Guido’s bail was set at $82,000. Yoon's bail was set at $30,000 and Estrada's was set at $20,000.
Yoon and Guido are scheduled to appear Thursday July 24th at Alhambra Municipal Court. Estrada is scheduled to apper in court September 22nd.
