A man has been arrested in connection to the bizarre road rage incident caught on camera in Greenpoint last week.

Kevin McLean, 46, was arrested on the evening of July 27 and faces charges of robbery, attempted assault, reckless endangerment, and attempted murder after a road rage incident by the intersection of Norman and McGuinness Boulevards six days ago.

The incident, seen in footage that has since gone viral, allegedly shows McClean and a 24-year-old livery cab driver in a scuffle, with McLean purportedly slashing a box cutter toward the other driver.

Their fight is broken up by a Good Samaritan, but McClean allegedly makes a run for it and steals the keys out of the livery cab before getting back into his own white Honda.

The livery driver chased after the Honda on foot and latched onto the driver’s door, but McClean allegedly hit the gas and nearly crushed the 24-year-old into another car.

The victim managed to survive the near crash, and was treated for bruising to the hip and hand lacerations at Woodhull Hospital, according to police.

McClean is held on a $100,000 bond, ordered by Judge Robin Sheares of Kings Criminal Court, records show.

McClean is due back in Kings Criminal Court on Aug. 2.

Not from Florida

Where is McDirty from? He tried to steal the cabbie’s keys, that alone can justify the guy from killing him in any other state, you do not reach into someone’s car and try to steal their keys, if there was a passenger and shot this guy right there, it would be justified and case closed. Do not reach in or try to open anyone’s car doors.

As for McDirty, where is he from? Is he from Florida? Jail him here and don’t send him back. If he’s been riding on Florida plates, occupying our precious parking spaces, driving on our roads with Florida plates, get him on that charge too. We need to start getting NY State-plate-only parking around here.
