It's happened to all of us at some point, getting cut off at the drive-thru. But when it happened here at this winter haven's McDonald’s last night one woman couldn't steer clear of a bout of road rage.

One thing's for sure Howard Wilson did not order a happy meal when he stepped out of his vehicle late Sunday night, and appears to punch Brittani Thomas in the face through her open car door.

"I didn't know if he was gonna get out of the car or not," said Tammy Roman, who caught the whole thing on her cellphone.

"Not only did she video tape the incident occurring but she also videoed the suspect's tag, which certainly led to his apprehension," explained Winter Haven’s Police Chief Gary Hester.

According to a winter haven police affidavit, Wilson yelled in Thomas’s face and held her door open after she tried to close it before punching her.

"My heart dropped. I didn't know what to think," said Tammy Roman.

But roman who took the video last night on this cell phone knew she needed to act.

But what do you need to know if a simple drive or a trip for burgers turns south?

Winter Haven Police Chief Gary Hester says leave your doors closed, windows up, and drive off; because there's always time to call the police when you're out of harm's way.
