Chevy Chase, one of the original cast members from NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” got into a beef in a traffic incident, resulting in the 74-year-actor being kicked by a New York man, authorities say.
“Chase told police he was cut off by another driver on Feb. 9. Thinking his car might be damaged, he followed the car across the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. Both drivers pulled over in South Nyack,” the AP reports. “A truck passenger, Michael Landrio, tells the New York Post that his friend tried to make peace, but the former ‘Saturday Night Live’ star got into their vehicle and tried to punch him.”
Landrio is saying he kicked Chase in self-defense during what’s described as a profanity-laced dispute. The kick reportedly sent Chase flying.
“Landrio was charged with harassment. Chase was not charged,” the AP notes.
