Road Rage: Yogurt vs. Handgun
http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local-beat/Road-Rage-Yogurt-vs-Handgun-106917938.html?dr ^ | November 9 2010 | KELVIN ROBINSON

Virginia State Police are investigating a case of road rage involving two drivers -- one armed with a gun and one with armed with a carton of yogurt.

A Toyota Rav4 cut off a Lexus on Interstate 95 in Quantico Friday afternoon, said police spokesman Sgt. F.L. Tyler. After that, the driver of the Lexus started to tailgate the Toyota, and the Toyota driver responded by tapping on his brakes.

At some point, the driver of the Lexus pulled up and threw a container of yogurt at the Toyota. That’s when the driver of the Toyota displayed a small caliber handgun.

Both drivers dialed #77 to report each other and stayed on the line with the dispatcher, who directed them to exit the highway in Massaponoax, Tyler said.

The driver of the Toyota is in deep do-do in VA!

Gerald Williams, who was driving the Lexus, faces a felony charge for “throwing a missile at a vehicle.”

Aha! Now, we know the mysterious missile was yogurt!

They both were arrested, so actually they called #77 on each other! They were both acting like 3rd graders.

Nope, or at least not that bad. Toyota driver is looking at a misdemeanor, and he may have a self-defense defense. Driver of the Lexus is looking at a fairly nasty felony.

We have a friend who was driving down I-17 in Phoenix in heavy traffic. Some other driver thought our friend had cut them off and was being a jerk. The other driver threw a bottle of water at our friends car, which irritated him to no end. He had some doughnuts in his vehicle. He threw a jelly filled doughnut at the other driver’s car. It went through the open window and hit the driver in the face, exploding upon impact.

The other driver reported the incident to the cops and said our friend had a gun. Our friend was pulled over and searched. When he got the chance to tell his side of the story, the cops let him go. He wasn’t charged because there’s no law covering assault with a jelly doughnut.

It can if it covers the windshield. That could have gotten someone killed, including someone not even involved. Yogurt boy’s temper tantrum probably just train-wrecked his life. Fortunately, it didn’t train-wreck someone else’s.

“They both were arrested, so actually they called #77 on each other! They were both acting like 3rd graders.”

Sorry, third graders know to leave before authority appears.

These bozo’s got what they deserved.

I hereby humbly suggest that an appropriate sentence would be THat both miscreants be tattooed with “DUMBER THAN A THIRD GRADER” on their sloping foreheads.

I would think that Quantico VA would be a particularly bad town to be throwing things at other drivers.

The yogurt you have with you is better than the cottage cheese you left at home.

Well, it certainly is not simply a prank. Considerable damage can result from throwing a container of yogurt. In Arizona, I believe it would be a misdemeanor.

Well like someone else here said. Throwing yogurt, or anything on someone’s windshield could have cause a person to wreck while driving. If he had just thrown the yogurt at the man while he was sitting in the car, no that would have not been a felony. While driving, I can see it. The man could have crashed and many could have been killed.

Simple solution (not that I advocate this.)

Let your adversary get slightly ahead of you. Pull up only to his rear doors, (or pick-up bed.) Let fly with full can of pop against the back door, quarter panel or truck bed.

Bad, bad you are if you do this. But possibly satisfied as well.

Throwing anything out of a car at another moving vehicle is against the law in VA. And yes, I believe its a felony.

Well, considering that “possession of a lobster” could be a felony, I think the word ‘felony’ is perfectly primed to lose all [real] meaning.

Any chance you're a fellow graduate of the Wile E Coyote School of Gunsmithin' (WECSOG)? Actually, I guess you're more likely to be the owner - in which case, thanks for the education!

Let your adversary get slightly ahead of you...

Then execute the PIT Maneuver.
