“Material desires, when unsatiated, generate anger, and thus the mind, eyes and chest become agitated. Therefore, one must practice to control them before one gives up this material body. One who can do this is understood to be self-realized and is thus happy in the state of self-realization.” (Shrila Prabhupada, Bhagavad-gita, 5.23 Purport)
There is something called “anger management”. It is a form of therapy. A trained professional working with the affected individual. At the root of the treatment is intelligence. Knowledge; in this case, “knowing better.”
As is often the case, the person with uncontrolled anger later regrets their actions. That tennis player shouldn’t have fired the ball into the stands. That batter shouldn’t have cursed at the umpire and kicked dirt over their feet. That motorist shouldn’t have intentionally driven so close to the vehicle in front of them.
