A furious motorist beat up an 81-year-old woman after he became stuck behind her as she drove along at 5mph.
Patricia Pearson was left with cut cheeks, swollen lips and lumps on her forehead as Usman Yasin, 30, slapped her across the face. And he only stopped when a passerby intervened.
Yet incredibly Yasin claimed he had only acted in self-defence, telling police she had hit him first, a court was told
Mrs Pearson was on her way to visit her husband in a care home as Yasin struggled to overtake her in a residential street in Burton upon Trent, Staffs.
But once he did, he slammed on his brakes and blocked the road.
