Road rage flasher faces several charges

A woman filmed flashing another motorist and his family following a car accident is facing several charges. On Wednesday, the Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) arrested 34-year-old Gina DeMarco. The arrest came six days after the unusual road rage incident. DeMarco was filmed hurling curse words and flashing the family during rush-hour traffic.

"I mean, what was she thinking? What was the point in doing that?" said Adrian Rodriguez, who was on the receiving end of the incident. Rodriguez says she became enraged after the two collided last Thursday on US 95. "She was going crazy," said Rodriguez. Two minutes later, she was gone, caught speeding away on camera.

"Clearly, this is outrageous behaviour and it has no place on our roadways," said Trooper Jason Buratczuk with the Nevada Highway Patrol. Buratczuk said that DeMarco could be facing hit-and-run and indecent exposure charges. And that's not all. As it turns out, she could be in even more trouble. "We found out that there may be something going on, beyond just a regular hit-and-run crash.

"It looks like maybe some fraud or identity theft may be involved. Investigators are still looking into that," said Buratczuk. "If she would've just stayed on scene, and waited for NHP to get there, she would've had an unsafe lane change ticket and been on her way, and now because of her actions, here we are today," added Buratczuk. DeMarco was booked into the Clark County Detention Center and faces five charges.
