BUFFALO, N.Y. — Six months following a brutal assault in a road rage incident in Cheektowaga, police have charged a different man with second degree assault.

Rakeem Scott was arraigned in Erie County Court Monday.

Rakeem Scott's brother, Maurice Scott, was originally charged in the incident, but police say he was the wrong man.
