Police said Reed, of Syracuse, New York, was driving his Chrysler Town and Country behind the man when he became angry that the vehicle was traveling the speed limit in the left lane.

Jason R. Reed, 39, of Syracuse, was driving through Bridgeville, located in Sussex County, with his wife and two children when he became angry that a man driving a 2015 Dodge Challenger was driving the speed limit in the left lane of US 13, according to the Delaware State Police. As Reed passed the vehicle, police say he made an abrupt lane change and hit it. A 50-year-old DE man was driving a 2015 Dodge Challenger directly in front of Reed's van.

The Challenger then came to a stop in the center media and Reed also pulled into the median and got out his vehicle to approach the driver of the Challenger, according to state troopers.

According to police, Reed confronted the driver of the Challenger--a 50-year-old, disabled Delmar man, who had exited his auto with a cane. Reed also pulled into the center median and exited his vehicle to confront the operator of the auto, police said. His wife and two children were in the minivan, police said.

That argument then turned physical, and the two men began fighting in the center median, falling into the other driver's vehicle, further damaging it. They said Reed's family were not hurt in the incident.

The 50-year-old victim was able to separate from the fight after forcing Reed to the ground prior to troopers' arrival, police said.

Police said the 50-year-old victim was slightly injured during the fight, but did not require medical attention.

Reed was charged with possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, four counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and other related charges.

Reed was arraigned at JP3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $40,350 secured bond.
