A woman who deputies say was involved in beating another woman during a Lauderdale Lakes road rage incident last month is now behind bars.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, 22-year-old Samantha Denis was arrested Wednesday morning.
According to the Broward Sheriff's Office, Denis is one of the two women who beat 26-year-old Mikaela Barboza during a road rage incident on Oakland Park Blvd. on March 22.
Barboza told authorities she accidentally cut off a woman while driving down U.S. 441.
The victim said that woman’s sister, who was driving a different car, saw what happened and began yelling at her.
Fearing for her safety, the victim allegedly pulled into a strip mall off Oakland Park Boulevard. Barboza then got out of her car and began recording the encounter on her cellphone.
The footage shows a woman walking toward Barboza while carrying a baseball bat in her right hand. BSO has not confirmed if Denis was the woman in the video with the baseball bat.
She then yelled racial slurs and began bashing Barboza in the head.
The second woman in the video involved has yet to be identified by deputies.
