Chevy Chase has opened up about the details surrounding a Road Rage incident, in which he was involved, on February 9, 2018, according to new reports from TMZ. The "Saturday Night Live" alum claims he was the victim of an Attack that took place in New York on the Tappan Zee Bridge. The 74-year-old actor stated that he had thought that a pick-up truck possibly hit his car in the process of cutting him off.

Chevy Chase loses control

He details following the truck while flashing his lights in an attempt to get the driver to pull over to discuss the potential accident. Chevy Chase [VIDEO] claims that after the truck 's driver finally stopped he realized that no damage to his vehicle had been done.

However, Chevy says that when approaching the driver to discuss the "reckless driving" one of the truck's passengers "flipped" Chase off which, in turn, set him off to verbally attacking the guy saying, "If I were a lot younger I'd bust your nose."

Emotions were obviously running very high in this situation because one of the truck's passengers then jumped at the aging Chase kicking him with so much force in the shoulder he hit the ground hard. When police arrived on the scene, the driver told them that Chevy Chase had started the physical fight throwing the first punch and that the kick came in an attempt to block Chevy's fist.

Chase and rehab, is it time to go back?

Chevy's rep revealed that it was impossible the actor would have thrown a punch, as he could not lift his arm due to taking fall on the ice just two days prior, injuring himself.

The physical part of this bizarre tale seems to add up, but what doesn't is Chevy chasing down the truck and confronting the drivers, especially at his advanced age and the dangerous world we live in now.

It appears as if Chevy Chase, despite being kicked, got off rather lucky considering that he could have been very seriously injured, or worse. This is not the first time that the actor's temper has appeared to get out of control. Chase is notorious, in the entertainment world, for being very difficult to work with, getting in crazy verbal confrontations with co-workers and even coming to blows with former "SNL" funnyman Bill Murray during their time on the series.

In the past, his aggressiveness has been blamed on his past issues with drug and alcohol addiction. Many are now wondering if Chevy may have fallen off the wagon once again. As previously reported, in 2016 Chase checked back into rehab calling it a "tune-up" for his addiction issues. Hopefully, that is not the issue this time.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe Chevy Chase was innocent in this attack, or could his temperament, and actions in handling this matter instigated the entire scene?
