MARRERO, LA (WVUE) -

A Marrero man told the Daily Mail from London he was spat on and punched during a 2006 confrontation with the man accused of shooting Joe McKnight in a road rage incident last Thursday.

Ronald Gasser was charged with simple battery in the 2006 incident. But the charges were later dropped, according to our partners at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

The man, who the Mirror identified as John Schilling, 61, or Marrero, said Gasser spat on him and punched him several times in the 2006 encounter.

Shilling, the Mirror reported, saw a man driving “irate and crazy.” He called the number on the side of the truck and reached Gasser himself.

Shilling pulled into a gas station at the same intersection where Gasser admitted to shooting McKnight.

Shilling said Gasser got out of his truck and spat at him and punched him,  said a different report on NOLA. | The Times-Picayune.
