    Two people are facing multiple charges after allegedly assaulting a Quincy District Court officer in what police are describing as an apparent road rage incident.

    According to police, Oscar Anderson, of Quincy, was driving northbound on Adams Street Wednesday when he steered to the right side of the road. Another driver, identified as a court officer who had been out on a lunch break, swerved left to avoid crashing into Anderson and continued driving. 

    When both cars were stopped at a traffic light on Hancock Street, police say  Anderson approached the other driver with a baseball bat yellling that he almost hit his car. 

    According to police, the officer wrestled Anderson to the ground and put him in a headlock before Anderson's girlfriend, Janaya Ward, 20, of Quincy, who was a passenger joined the fight. According to police, Ward punched the officer, and hit him with a boot and the bottom of a car seat.
