The prosecution claimed that the 75-year-old, from Park Lane in the town, pulled out in front of Keith Kirk's car on Park Road, Dungannon and that this was the match that lit the fuse.
There was a verbal confrontation, during which Lord Maginnis subjected Mr Kirk to verbal abuse, grabbed him, forming a fist with his hand and tried to hit him, the prosecution continued.
However, the defence accused Mr Kirk, 21, of making the context up - stating that Lord Maginnis had stopped to let a car out when Mr Kirk approached from behind him blaring the car horn.
Lord Maginnis, the defence continued, got out of the car to tackle him about being a road hog.
He conceded that he did swear at Mr Kirk - but denied trying to hit him.
District Judge John Meehan said he was satisfied the prosecution had proved the case beyond reasonable doubt.
He fined Lord Maginnis £200 and ordered him to pay a further £200 in compensation to Mr Kirk.
Outside court, the peer said he had already lodged an appeal.
"I am obviously not letting it rest here," he said.
"One might say: What's a couple of hundred pounds?' But this is my reputation. And I am appealing it, I can assure you I am appealing it."
