FENTON (KMOX) -- A High Ridge man is in jail on a half-million dollar bond following a road rage incident that left a 68-year-old man seriously injured.

Bradley Jorden is accused of causing an accident and then fleeing the scene on Wednesday. Police say a woman driving along Gravois near Northwest Boulevard noticed Jorden in his Jeep cutting off several drivers. She laid on her horn and gave him "the finger." Jorden returned "the finger" and soon after stopped at an intersection in front of the woman, then backed into her, and sped off.

The woman and her husband followed Jorden to a Steak 'N Shake parking lot, where the woman called police. While doing that, Jorden exited his vehicle, opened the woman's passenger door and began punching her husband in the face with a closed fist. Her husband sustained unspecified serious injuries.

Jorden was taken to the Jefferson County Jail after police talked with witnesses. There, he allegedly charged after the deputy who transported him and spit at a correctional officer.

He's been charged with Assault 2nd, leaving the scene of a vehicle accident and Assault 3rd Special Victim.
