Part of the incident was captured on camera, but police are still looking for the suspect. You can see the video at the bottom of the page. The Daily Mail notes that, prior to the verbal spat with the cyclists, the Audi driver got into a fight with another driver, yelling at him from a Vauxhall at a traffic stop.

At a different traffic stop, one cyclist approached the Audi, which is when the driver lost his cool again. This is where the video starts, captured on the GoPro of another cyclist. You can see cans flying out of the Audi, as the driver is trying to get the cyclist to shut up and leave him alone.

He speeds off, almost hitting a few cyclists and nearly causing an accident, but he doesn’t plan on leaving it be. Some distance away, he gets into another fight with a cyclist who tried to tell him off for his reckless driving and nasty behavior, and he mounts the pavement in an attempt to ram him with his car.

The cyclist, Graham Towler, was on his way to work and he admits he didn’t expect to be nearly run over. He also says the driver informed him that the car was stolen and, as such, he was willing to do anything he wanted.

“I want to get this dangerous lunatic off the roads. He could have taken me out and seriously hurt me. He used his vehicle as a weapon to vent his considerable fury at two other vehicles on the road, between 10-20 cyclists and he could have struck any one of us, including a number of pedestrians when he rammed at us on a pavement and reversed down that road at high speed,” Graham tells the mail.

“I'm making sure that this film is seen so that hopefully the police can catch this angry little man before it's too late and someone is actually hospitalized because of him. He needs to be stopped,” he adds.

The Audi driver eventually sped off when he heard an unmarked police car’s siren, which started a chase that ended when he lost them. As of this moment, police are still looking for him.
