A Missouri man charged after allegedly tackling a woman in a road-rage infused incident in a suburb of St. Louis last week remained on the loose Thursday, the officials said.

Scott Heatherly, 50, was charged Tuesday with assault and two counts of damage to property, FOX2NOW reported. Arnold of the Police, however, said that the were not able to find him.

Heatherly followed by a woman in his truck, and Friday, because he believed that she threw something at his vehicle, while both were on Interstate 55, police said. Heatherly followed the woman, who has not been identified, closely, flashing the truck’s lights, the woman later told the police. She said she called her husband, who told her to stop in a parking lot.

Authorities say a security camera from the parking lot allegedly caught the crucial chain of events: Heatherly walked to the woman’s window, arguing with her, and then began kicking her car, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

After the woman got out of the car to take pictures of the suspect kicking her vehicle, Heatherly tackled her, took her phone and threw it across the parking lot, officials said. An off-duty deputy witnessed the incident and attempted to stop the suspect. But the authorities said Heatherly reed — almost hitting the woman with his truck.
