A Pottsville woman tells police she was the victim of a road rage incident on the 4th of July. During the incident, the woman claims she was taken out of her car and punched in the head.

According to information from State Police in Schuylkill Haven, this alleged incident happened along Route 61 in North Manheim Twp., at the highway’s intersection with Pottsville St.

At about 4 p.m. on July 4, Shia Watson, 28, of Pottsville, says she was followed from the Deer Lake area by a pair of vehicles. Watson described the people following her as two Hispanic men. She says one of them was large and had a goatee. The other was thinner, police say.

Each man allegedly exited their vehicles – a silver Mitsubishi Endeavor and a late-model black Chevrolet Impala – and proceeded to punch Watson in the face, she says. They then physically removed her from her vehicle and continued their assault on the Pottsville woman, police report.

    Omg. This is outrageous. I hope they post the photos of these poor excuses for men all over so we women can watch out for these bottom feeders. Prayers to the victim.
