Me and my freind were going around 21 mph down a back road today single file, right on the line, little traffic as always. We just passed a few houses and were in the middle of nowhere. Next thing I know we had a car right on us and forced us off the road. The mirrow of the car hit me and I yell what the hell are you doing, Mike was already in the ditch. We stoped and the car stopped right beside us and the driver started to yell at me and Mike. He was yelling something about selling crack and we better have proof and he would kill us. I was yelling back and ready to kick the hell out of his car, before I could get unclipped I thought this nut may have a gun. So the guy drove off but not before we got his plate number. I called the state troopers and told my story and the said that their on it. The trooper called back and said they ran the plates and they know were he lives. They say I may have to pick him out of a line up, I said I'll be waitting. I don't Know what he will be charged with, but I hope it will keep this nut off the road, maybe in a nice cell.

That was very clear thinking on your part not to shoot your mouth in the midst of a highly emotional situation. The sad truth is that nowadays you need to be careful about how confrontational you want to get. Ticking off the wrong person in the wrong situation and ending up dead or worse makes being right fairly irrelevant.

I hope you get that guy. And I'm glad nothing serious happened to anyone.

no matter the charges, he won't spend as much as an hour in jail. At any rate, watch your back.
