    The two drivers reportedly got into a dispute on Webster Street in Brookline, Massachusetts. The suspect then dragged the victim 40 to 50 feet with his car.

    No injuries were reported.

    Police identified the suspect as 61-year-old Ossmane Offre of Brockton. He is facing charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Offre has yet to be arraigned. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
