Acting legend Chevy Chase was allegedly attacked during an apparent road rage incident earlier this month, where a local NY man kicked Chase and was then arrested.
New York State police are being quoted in a story about Chase chasing another driver who supposedly cut him off February 9 on northbound Interstate 87.
Chase told police he thought the pickup had scraped his own vehicle so he flashed his lights and followed the driver until he pulled over.
Chase realized no damage had been done to either vehicles but chose to still approach the driver to "speak to him about his reckless driving" and one of the driver's three passengers gave him an offensive hand gesture. According to reports, one of the passengers in the auto kicked Chase in the shoulder, causing him to fall hard on the ground. Following the exchange, a passenger in the truck, Michael C. Landrio, 22, of East Patchogue, NY, cursed at Chase, then kicked him in the shoulder.

The young man said he kicked Chase to block a punch, said police, who weren't able to confirm that.
The 22-year-old attacker was slapped with a count of second-degree harassment with physical contact, according to state police.
A witness also was involved in the report, noting he pulled over because he didn't want to witness the older man, Chase, "get his a- stomped". One of the people in the truck reportedly flipped the comedy icon off.
