Surveillance footage of the Feb. 23 incident released last week showed Ferri’s alleged actions, which investigators described as “bizarre, cruel and reckless behavior.”
The video shows Ferri allegedly stopped at a crosswalk in Oakland Park to allow a pedestrian to pass.
But, as the person crossed in front of Ferri, he allegedly “accelerated and turned in the direction of the victim.”
The incident left the pedestrian with a broken leg, according to the sheriff’s office.
Ferri, who “has a history of arrests in Broward County,” was hit with a slew of charges, including battery, violation of probation, and drug-related offenses.
