An ATV rider caught on camera bashing a car window with a cinder block and punching out the driver after a fender bender has been arrested, authorities said.

Gregory Stevens, 27, was nabbed Friday, the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office said.

Stevens — whose Philadelphia road rage went viral earlier this week — was hit with a bevy of charges for two separate incidents, including attempted murder, aggravated assault and robbery for the February shooting of a pharmacist in an oxycontin pill robbery, authorities said.

He faces assault, reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and harassment charges from the hot-headed encounter with the driver of a sport utility vehicle who rear-ended Stevens’ ATV after Stevens had suddenly hit the brakes.

After the collision, Stevens was allegedly caught on camera smashing the SUV’s windows and slugging the driver. The ATV rider was also seen briefly brandishing a gun, the local PhillyVoice reported.

“This violence is an outrage and will be vigorously and justly prosecuted. It also raises questions about the challenges state supervision faces when many court functions are still shut down,” Krasner said in a statement.
