Miami police said there were no injuries at the scene and despite the man's attempt to flee he was taken into custody. "Three counts of leaving the scene of an accident with property damage".

But cops warned others not to repeat the actions of the vigilante drivers who ganged up on the SUV should they find themselves in a similar situation, and dial 911 instead.

Cellphone video captured some of the Sunday incident, which occurred on Biscayne Boulevard when a few drivers left their vehicles and tried to stop the SUV driver from leaving the scene.

It's there that the auto comes to a stop again when another SUV blocks the lane. "You have a crash, you stop".

Maxwell Lagutenko, 25, was later charged in the crash that happened near Northeast 34th Street. He went on to drive in the wrong direction and crashed into two other vehicles.

Monika Ramirez, the woman who recorded the video, said she wanted to help in whatever way she could.

On Sunday, a whole bunch of South Floridians were dead set on stopping a hit-and-run driver high on narcotics on Sunday...and it included a dude just bashing away at the fleeing vehicle with his handy sledgehammer. They were told to cease their pursuit before another officer stopped Lagutenko. He was issued a $5,000 bond on Monday, March 12. He now has a total of 20 traffic citations in Miami-Dade County over the last eight years.

Instead, officers urge people to call the police with a description of the vehicle.
