Ryan Arakaki admits that he cut in front of a woman while on the road earlier this week, but what he filmed after had him going to the cops to file a report the next day.
Arakaki took video of an intense bout of road rage, all of which was witnessed by a young boy in the passenger's seat.
The footage starts with a silver Honda blaring its horn at a black truck in front of it and driving across the center line into oncoming traffic.
The woman driving the minivan eventually pulled next to the truck, rolled down the passenger-side window where the boy sat and yelled at Arakaki.
"Let me get your license plates asshole," she screamed during the incident, which happened Wednesday in Honolulu.
She then sped ahead of him, but that's not where it ended.
"Why don't you get out of your car you f***ing fat ass. Bite me," the woman yelled out her window while at a stop sign, holding up her middle finger at Arakaki.
The woman then got out of her car and confronted Arakaki face-to-face.
"When you cut me off, I almost f***ing wrecked you asshole. Film that!" she said, at one point appearing to reach into Arakaki's car.
Even as Arakaki pulled away, she continued to call him fat.
"I'll f*** you up," she said.

In the video's description, Arakaki gave more of his account about what happened:
This lady was looking down at something, maybe on her phone or something else but there was a good car and a half length of free space in front of her so I changed lanes (she was completely still, not moving at all waiting for red light to change). As I made my turn I could hear the lady's horn blaring. I looked in my rear view and I could see she was visibly upset. She continued to tail gate me and follow me closely. She then tried to either overtake me or get on the side of me to try and run me off the road. She did this a few times. I slowly drove the speed limit and made it to a shopping center near by. At this point the lady continued to follow me and I knew she wasn't going to let me go so I took out my phone and started recording her.
Arakaki told KITV-TV that he reported the incident to police Thursday, even though using your phone to film while driving is illegal in Hawaii. Police would not share too many details about the case, but told the news station that it was "unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle." Investigators are reviewing the incident.
UPDATE: KDNN-FM reported that the woman, who is apparently 47 years old, turned herself in to police Friday night.
