  • A woman sustained several injuries after a road rage incident in late March.
  • Authorities said an arrest has been made in the violent outburst caught on camera.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office said an arrest has been made in the road rage incident captured on video in which a woman was attacked by two sisters with baseball bats.

Jail records show Samantha Denis, 22, faces a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.

Mikaela Barboza said she sustained a broken nose when two sisters attacked her. She said she cut off another driver in late March near Fort Lauderdale. The other driver and her sister, who was in another car, began yelling at her.

Barboza said she pulled into a nearby parking lot in Lauderdale Lakes because she was worried for her safety. She called 911 when the women followed her and blocked in her car.

She started recording on her cellphone as the women approached, Barboza said. They got into a tussle and one of the women hit Barboza with a metal bat. The other hit her with a wooden bat, she said.

The other women left before deputies arrived. It is not yet clear which of the sisters seen in the video was arrested.
