State Police report charging both women in that Rte. 128 incident on Friday that made the national news.
The younger woman, 33, from Gloucester, faces charges of assault and battery on a person 60 or older, disorderly conduct, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, stopping on a state highway and assault. The older woman, 64, from Beverly, will be summoned into court on charges of assault and battery and disorderly conduct, State Police say.
State Police also told the RMV that both women are an "immediate threat," which means they will have to explain to the RMV why they should be allowed to keep driving.
The fight took place a couple months after the last time Massachusetts motorists made the national news - in the incident with the guy hanging on the hood of the car driving down the turnpike.
