Stuffed has learnt that failed Warriors player Epalahame Lauaki was today was involved in a violent road rage incident.
A West Auckland man was driving in Glen Eden towards Kelston when a car started aggressively tail-gating him. The driver kept driving normal and then the car behind him tried to undertake him, when that didn’t work he tried forcing himself in and tried ramming the man off the road. The driver in fron’t had to swerve across the median strip towards oncoming traffic to dodge the angry driver.
The driver in the car behind then started throwing things at the innocent driver and followed him all the way to Titirangi.
Once in Titirangi the driver behind then started yelling threats at the other driver. When he got closer, he could see it was failed ex Warriors and Kiwi’s player Hame Lauaki.
He kept swearing and threatening the innocent driver saying that he was ‘now a marked man’.
Stuffed has reached out to Lauaki for comment.
