Media personality and football commentator Rex Hunt has been caught on camera in an alleged road rage incident during which he threatened another driver with a gardening tool.
Footage aired on Nine News showed the footy icon chasing a car following a minor incident at Beaumaris at about 10am on Tuesday.
The two drivers involved turned a corner where their clash was caught on camera.
The other male driver appeared to throw a punch at Hunt before the well-known football commentator reacted and grabbed something from the back of the car he was driving.
“You want to die?” Hunt was heard saying in the footage.
He appeared to be wielding a small gardening fork when he threatened the other driver.
Witness Byron Hughes told Nine News that Hunt’s wife and dog were in the car at the time and said he was forced to step in during the incident.
“I told him mate, just back off just go away,” Hughes said.
“He was just losing his shit.”
No official report was filed with police and Mr Hunt did not respond to a request for comment, according to Nine News.
