Ramona, Calif. – A photographer was doing an automotive shoot on Saturday near the California town of Ramona when he found himself in the middle of a frightening road-rage incident.
Alex Stone and his crew had just started to record when a 52-year-old man drove up and accused them of being on a “private road,” according to a post on his Facebook page.
When Stone tried to explain that it was, in fact, a public road, the man became enraged and started yelling obscenities.
On the video, Stone can be heard trying to calm the down the man and explain that he was not blocking traffic.
But the driver of the truck insisted that Stone on his driveway and grew increasingly agitated, the video shows.
According to Stone, the man then attempted to use his truck as a weapon.
“I turn around and he’s busting a U-turn coming at me with his truck … I had to jump out of the way,” Stone told KTLA. “I’ve never really been that scared.”
The man then got out of the truck and went after Stone’s crew, the video shows.

“I had to physically hold him back,” Stone said. “Sir, sir, don’t do this.”
At the end of the video, the man can be seen knocking Stone’s phone out of his hand.
The man, later identified as Mark Dwayne Gordon, was arrested Sunday and booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, battery and vandalism, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Rob Samuels told KSWB.
