A pensioner was attacked by a motorist after he told him off for driving while using a mobile phone.
The 88-year-old victim was walking in The Square, Findon, when he saw a black car driving through the village at about 5.15pm on November 20.
He waved his finger at the motorist and when the car stopped nearby, the pensioner tapped on the window and told the man he should not be on the phone while driving.
The driver got out of the car and pushed the pensioner over. The victim suffered a suspected fractured hip
Detective Inspector Andy Westwood said: "The victim was assaulted simply for telling the driver he was committing an offence and putting people in danger by being on the phone."
A 62-year-old man from Littlehampton was arrested on suspicion of assault and bailed until 18 December.
