Warne has been accused by the anonymous cyclist of aggressively lurching his car forward after he maneuvered around Warne’s car in order to get to the front at traffic lights.

“The driver in the car on my right, the Mercedes possibly concerned I might damage his car yelled out to me. Once I was through the gap I moved back into the centre lane, stopped and looked back at the driver, who was still yelling, to hear what he was saying,” the rider detailed.

News of the accident soon went viral on social networking platform Twitter where Warne voiced his opinions:

“He was lucky, I was actually polite and careful after smacking my car twice and grabbing onto my car, otherwise I might have put my foot down and tried to hit him.”

He pulls out in front of me whacks my bonnet with his hand and pulls out in front of all the traffic, i yell out hey buddy what the hell,” Warne Tweeted.

Both the cyclist and Warne have now made reports to the Victoria Police who have advised them to take civil action due to the minor nature of the incident.
