Browns cornerback Justin Gilbert crashed his Dodge Challenger into a ditch following a road rage incident with a driver he believed cut him off, according to the Brunswick police department.

ESPN Cleveland reports Gilbert swapped middle fingers with the other driver before throwing a paper cup full of dip spit onto the 55-year-old Parma man’s windshield, according to cops. That man, driving a Ford Mustang, then reportedly chased Gilbert while “driving like a maniac,” according to witnesses quoted by police.

Police cited Gilbert for lack of responsible control.
