DEVELOPING STORY: infonews.co.nz has been made aware of an incident that took place in Palmerston North. 

A man who was hit off his motorbike by a road rage driver was kicked out of Palmerston North Police Station after he asked for an investigation to be made, even being told he would be arrested. 

The driver of the vehicle that hit the motorcyclist drove away from the scene, so the motorcyclist followed him to his work where Police were rung.
