Road rage accountant driven to violence by illness fined by tribunal

A chartered accountant, who suffered a bout of road-rage and attacked a fellow motorist on his way home from a football match, has been fined £2,000 with costs of £1,196 by an English ICA disciplinary tribunal.

Anthony Miller , of Elstree in Herts appeared before the tribunal while it heard how a motor vehicle driven by Miller was involved in an accident with another vehicle.

It is understood Miller and the driver of the other vehicle both got out of their motors and began fighting. During the scuffle Miller assaulted the other driver who sustained an injury to his eye and bites on his face and neck.

But the tribunal put the brakes on excluding Miller from the institute after hearing how the defendant was waiting for treatment from the NHS to a condition which brought about loss of self-control.

It concluded that it would not expel Miller from the institute due to the illness he was suffering at the time of the incident, but warned him he was on his last chance. Miller has since been treated and is on the road to recovery.
