Irvine, Calif. - It began with verbal threats. With the music of Drake playing in the background, someone inside a vehicle starts recording what is about to be a melee on the freeway.
California Highway Patrol says it was June 12th on the northbound side of the Five Freeway at 7th street, but it wasn't until this past Wednesday evening that any suspects were arrested.
KCBS reports David Mendez, 21 and Edras Ramirez, 27, turned themselves in to the California Highway Patrol.
Manny Medrana, a Legal Analyst for KTLA had this to say while watching the video, "And arguably at this point, each could argue self-defense. But at some point as you see in the video, we leave the realm of self-defense and we go into the realm of assault and battery."
The fight continues as people are blowing their horns. You can see the traffic in the side mirror, but no one is getting out of their vehicle to stop the fight or even help the victim as the beating turns brutal. There were at least five kicks, four to the victim's head, before the suspects take off and people watching try to get a license plate number.
As the suspects drive away, the victim isn't moving. The man recording it all finally puts his vehicle in park, gets out and walks over to the victim.
He eventually sits the victim up, and at that point, the video abruptly ends.
While two suspects are currently in custody, the identity of the victim is still not known.
California Highway Patrol is asking anyone who may have seen the attack or be able to identify the suspects to come forward.
