PETALING JAYA - A road rage viral video landed two men in hot water as they are set to be charged in court.

City police chief Comm Datuk Amar Singh said in a statement that the incident on Jalan Pahang was caused by the two men being intolerant and losing their temper on the road.

"It was a small matter which could have been settled amicably.

"Both did not want to give way and ended up scraping their vehicles against each other," he said on Wednesday.

The men instead will be charged under Section 427 of the Penal Code for mischief.

The video, which went viral on social media, shows both men arguing and shouting before one of the men, later identified as a 27-year-old businessman, gets into his car and attempts to drive away.

The second man kicks the businessman's car several times before the first man reverses into the other's parked car and finally drives off.

It was reported that this is the second time the businessman has been caught on a road rage related viral video.

The first was earlier this year when he was seen blocking the road with his car and preventing another car from driving away.
