BATON ROUGE- The driver of a pick-up truck that drove with a man on the hood of his vehicle for miles last weekend has been identified.

Cell phone video, posted online, made the incident infamous.

Dwayne Huysmans yelled to passing cars: "call the police for me!" Huysmans ride happened when, he said, someone tried to take signs for his roadside business.

The 80-year-old driver denied an interview with WBRZ News 2 about what happened.

Police said the signs were on public property and neither man was charged.
