VIDEO: "Career Criminal" Charged with Murder in Road Rage Attack on CA Deputy

An admitted gang member who the district attorney described as a "career criminal" has been charged with murder in the attack on a 70-year-old off-duty San Benardino County (CA) Sheriff's deputy on New Year's Eve.

Alonzo Leron Smith, 30, allegedly struck Lawrence “Larry” Falce in a road rage attack after a minor crash Sunday morning, causing the deputy's death, KTLA TV reports.

Surveillance video provided by a nearby business captured the two speaking; less than a minute after they approached each other, the other driver punched the deputy in the head. Falce dropped to the ground and never regained consciousness.

The other driver left despite a witness's attempt to ram his SUV and stop him.

Falce, a 36-year veteran of the San Bernardino SO, died after being taken off life support Tuesday night.
