Tolk was in his Uber auto stopped at a red light at that intersection of 11th Avenue and 20th Street when investigators say Kosugi took the hockey stick and began using it to hit the side of Tolk's vehicle.

Police said 68-year-old Richard Tolk, 68, of West New York, was driving a livery cab late Saturday night in Manhattan along 11th Avenue and West 20th Street.

Kosugi allegedly hit Tolk's auto while it was stopped, and the driver got out of the vehicle to confront the suspect.

Police have identified the driver as 68-year-old Randolph Tolk.

The suspect, Kohji Kosugi, 39, is charged with manslaughter.

After the fight, Tolk got in his auto and drove away until he crashed into a center divider at West and Horatio streets in the West Village, police said.
