CAMP PENDLETON - A violent outburst by a Camp Pendleton Marine during an apparent road rage incident was caught on camera by the passenger of a truck on base.
The video, which is nearly three minutes long, shows a Marine sergeant screaming profanities at the driver and yelling for him to get out of the truck.
10News has learned the name of the sergeant, who is a Purple Heart recipient. However, 10News is not revealing his identity until he is formally charged.
The woman filming the video is a wounded Marine. 10News was told she is paralyzed from the waist down after being injured last year. The driver in the video is the wounded Marine's brother, who is also her caregiver.
Both say they are terrified after the ordeal, which occurred Monday afternoon.
While the two people who were in the truck were too traumatized to speak with 10News, their good friend would.
"To go into such a fit -- unprovoked -- it's pretty scary," said the friend, was only identified as "Lisa."
She wanted her true identity concealed because she is the one who posted the video on the 10News Facebook page.
Lisa told 10News she posted it after she was outraged about how it all went down.
"He cut them off and apparently he kept brake-checking them," said Lisa. "He would slam on his brakes abruptly. They hit into the back of him on the third time."
10News contacted the Public Affairs Office at Camp Pendleton, which had not yet seen the video. They tell 10News that the Marine was detained after the incident and cited for communicating a threat.
The office also said in a statement, "This individual's behavior does not meet the standards that are expected of our Marines and it has received the attention of senior base staff."
It also grabbed the attention of people 10News spoke with in Oceanside.
"(Marines) are usually viewed as like really professional," said one man.
Another man told 10News, "If you mess up in today's world, it goes viral. Everybody's going to know about it tomorrow."
The victims' friend hopes he gets help.
"I really hope that his command can watch that and someone can get him the help that he needs," added Lisa. "Anyone who acts like that unprovoked is a danger to the public."
10News reached out to the Marine in the video for his side of the story but have not heard back.
