‘I just kinda lost my cool, I guess,’ Mr Constandinou told 7 News outside court.
‘He kind of aggravated me, but I should have taken a moment to think about my actions and, ah, just let it go.’
Motorists yelled at him to stop but he continued.
He finally stopped once he pulled away by two motorists.
‘I hope that you can find it in the kindness of your heart to forgive me,’ he said.
Constandinou is due to be sentenced in October.
