Following the car collision, Brady and the other involved driver allegedly engaged in a heated argument that eventually turned physical after they pulled over to exchange information related to insurance coverage.

“Wayne is so upset about this incident with a drunk driver. As a father, he was just thankful it was not his daughter or anyone’s child dealing with this,” a source close to the situation said during an interview. “He kept thinking what if it was his daughter.”

Brady, also 51, reportedly called 911 following the altercation with the other driver, but the actor and comedian did not need the services of emergency first responders or ambulance transport to a hospital related to the altercation.
