NAACP looking at Glastonbury road rage incident

Posted: Updated:
GLASTONBURY, CT (WFSB) -

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People said it may get involved after a disturbing case of road rage in Glastonbury involving alleged violence and racial bigotry.

Police said a driver followed a black man home, beat him up and yelled racial slurs.

Police said Patrick Loughlin, 32, was upset, claiming the victim cut him off on Route 3.

The police report showed the 20-year-old victim was so badly beaten that the back of his head needed to be stapled shut.

Loughlin turned himself in to police earlier this week, almost three months after the incident.

He now faces a number of charges, including assault and conspiracy to commit intimidation based on bigotry.
