A man dubbed the “Telsa Terrorizer,” was caught on video in the midst of a road rage incident bashing a woman’s car with a club or pipe on a Glendale, Calif., freeway.
The video shared by KABC resulted in at least 10 people coming forward to say they’ve had frightening encounters with the man, according to the affiliate — the good news being the serial road rage suspect has since been arrested.
Nathaniel Walter Radimak, 36, was arrested by California Highway Patrol officers at a carwash and was booked for assault with a deadly weapon and on two outstanding warrants, KABC reported, noting in a tweet that included footage of his attacks that Radimak “targets women and the men who come to their aid.”
The Tesla driver who’s been on a one-man road rage rampage across SoCal has been ID’d. The suspect targets women and the men who come to their aid, smashing cars with pipes and punching victims. So who is he, and where is he? Tonight at 11 from ABC7 https://t.co/5vlnn2tKD3 pic.twitter.com/9DJAyRCkof

Initial bail for the “EV-driving lunatic,” as the Daily Mail described Radimak, was listed at $5.175 million and his 2022 Tesla Model X was seized — pricing for the vehicle starts at $98,940.
Not surprisingly, Radimak reportedly had several outstanding warrants and a history of alleged domestic abuse and other crimes.
Popular social media influencer TizzyEnt began sharing ABC7’s videos on TikTok and the affiliate said that after three people came forward with the suspect’s name he passed it on to the police.
“It was kind of shocking to hear how much had happened, how many incidents and how many victims there seemed to be, and that just reinforced the fact that this is not OK,” he said. “This guy needs to get off the street.”
One victim of the suspect, a woman who was punched in the face in October 2021, spoke with KABC — the remarkable factor here being that it took so long to finally identify Radimak.
“Lately, social media has been a better platform and tool to finding the suspect than law enforcement has ever been, at least from what I’ve see and what I’ve heard,” she said. “It’s been concerning knowing that this case has been going on for a while, and the suspect has been walking out like the free man he is.”
There was some debate over whether the ABC affiliate was looking to besmirch Elon Musk with the catchy moniker — the CEO of Tesla who has taken heat from the left after taking control of Twitter:
I mean they dubbed him “the Tesla Terrorizer” they might have equally gone for “Volvo Vandalizer” or “Audi Assaulter.” News stations love catchy alliteration, I think that’s all it is.

Speaking of Musk, a few social media users couldn’t resist the urge to have a little fun:
It is! Trying to drop the price of his Tesla’s even more.
