Stone said he set up for a shoot Saturday afternoon on a dead-end section of Rangeland Road. He was contracted to photograph parts on an Audi and wanted to use the remote landscape.
Forty-five minutes later a driver pulled up. The man repeatedly claimed Stone and his equipment were blocking a driveway, but there isn't one on that stretch of road. The driver then appears to leave, but the turned around for a third time. Then gets out and physically confronts one of stone's assistants. Stone says the man then came at him.
The video ends with Stone's phone flying through the air. He said the driver hit it away from his hand, cracking the screen.
Sheriff's deputies reported that Gordon was arrested Sunday and subsequently booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, battery and vandalism in connection with the attack Saturday.
Meanwhile Stone tells CBS News 8 that he just wants the man to pay $200 for the damage to his phone.
