Some follow-up on the Oct. 1 traffic altercation: a witness saw an exchange between the two combatants at Hilliard and Canterbury Rds. Both continued on to Detroit and Columbia Rds., (as did the witness) where the physical fracas occurred. The 60-year-old Westlake man reportedly got out of his truck wielding a hammer. The two subjects fought, and then went their separate ways. The City Prosecutor will review the report for possible charges.
