ROAD RAGE: Florida women pull driver from car, beat her unconscious for not going fast enough

Two Pasco County women face battery charges after a witness recorded them beating another woman during a road rage encounter.

According to cops, Shelley Gemberling, 49, and her boyfriend's 20-year-old daughter, Alicia Scarduzio, precipitated a road rage incident that has to be seen to be believed.

When Scarduzio and Gemberling got out of their vehicle and approached the other one, the driver tried to close her window but the women grabbed her by the hair and throat and pulled out of the auto where she fell to the ground, deputies reported.

They beat her unconscious and video shows the women repeatedly hitting the woman as she lay on the ground.

Authorities are holding Scarduzio and Gemberling in the Land O'Lakes Detention Center. As Bailey tried to raise her window, the pair reached into her vehicle and grabbed her by her hair and throat, then pulled her out of the vehicle and began beating her. They continued to hit her until another citizen intervened.

On Tuesday afternoon, the two women got into an argument with 20-year-old veterinary technician Emily Bailey at an intersection in New Port Richey. "It looked like she wanted to kill me", Bailey told WFLA.

'I never thought they would get out of their auto and run toward me and pull me out of my vehicle'.

The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for her injuries. Gemberling allegedly told deputies that Bailey got out of her vehicle and pushed her.

Pasco Sheriff's Capt. Stephen Hartnett said at the time he was looking into whether deputies turned down cell phone video and said charges had not yet been filed because the women involved were accusing each other of starting the fight.
