Radnor driver arrested for assault, son in car

RADNOR, Pa. - December 5, 2011

Radnor Police Chief William Colarulo says it was around 8:00 p.m. when an Audi driven by Robert Maxwell turned onto Lancaster Avenue.

In doing so, police say Maxwell cut off a woman that was driving along the road.

Colarulo says the female driver beeped her horn. Maxwell stopped his Audi, got out of the car, and began kicking the woman's vehicle and cursing.

The woman exited her car in an attempt to read Maxwell's license plate.

Maxwell then assaulted the woman and proceeded to drag her through the street and into nearby hedges, Colarulo said.

He kicked the woman until other passersby came to her assistance.

Maxwell then got back into his car and sped off at a high rate speed nearly running the woman over.

Police say less than a mile up the road, Maxwell ended up getting into an accident.

There he was arrested for DUI, aggravated assault, and related charges.

Police say Maxwell's 10-year old son was in the backseat of his father's car the entire time.
