A bizarre incident involving a big-time Hollywood actor and a couple too young to know who he was is leaving a whole lot of questions that haven’t been answered yet.
According to Page Six, 22-year-old UPS driver Michael Landrio was headed out of the New York City area with his girlfriend to go snowmobiling earlier this month when a Mercedes behind him started flashing its lights at them before pulling up next to them as they continued to drive.
“It was an old guy yelling – something we couldn’t hear – super pissed-off. … We just tried to get the heck away from him. He followed us the whole length of the bridge, driving crazy,” Landrio recounted.
Finally, as the Mercedes continued to pursue them, they pulled over. And that’s when things got even more bizarre.
The Mercedes blocked them in and the elderly driver reportedly got out and started screaming at them, yelling, “You know who the [expletive] I am? I am going to ruin your lives!”
Landrio didn’t know who he was, and he and his girlfriend and cursed back at him. That’s when the elderly driver allegedly got out of his car and attacked Landrio.
“Then he yanks open their car door and yells, ‘I’m going to punch you in the nose’ and he came after me and had his hands in my face. I said, ‘Get the [expletive] away from me!’” Landrio explained.
That’s when the young driver says he kicked the elderly man, sending him flying back into the side of his Mercedes. Landrio says the man tried to get into his car again, but an off-duty police officer and nurse showed up and “escorted him away.”
The officer told Landrio the elderly driver’s name: Chevy Chase. 74-year-old Chase has an extensive acting career, and he is best known for starring in “Caddyshack” and “Saturday Night Live.”
Landrio said, “I looked him up on Google, and I still didn’t know who he was. He didn’t look like he looked when he made his movies.”
Police say Landrio cut off Chase while driving, which is what sparked the fight. Landrio claims he kicked Chase in self-defense, NBC Chicago reports. Charges against Chase or Landrio are unclear. Landrio’s girlfriend was charged with a count of second-degree harassment
