Cops arrested a 62-year-old man and 52-year-old woman after the pair brawled over a traffic dispute on Garfield Place on Jan. 26.
The woman told police she was stuck in traffic between Eighth Avenue and Prospect Park West at 5:20 pm when the man, who was in the middle of taking out his trash, started beating his fists on the hood of her car.
The woman emerged from the car, irate and confused, asking why the older man had whacked her vehicle, and the guy started screaming, cops said.
So the woman went back into her car, grabbed her Mace, and started spraying, catching the older man in the eye, according to police.
The man, in retaliation, slammed her to the ground, cops said.
Following the fracas, police arrived and arrested everybody, charging both the man and woman with misdemeanor assault.
