How screwed up is this?

Road Rage: Yogurt vs. Handgun | NBC Washington


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.

Trooper J.C. Jeanty interviewed the two drivers and arrested them both.

Mark Flannery, who was driving the Toyota, was charged with reckless driving and brandishing a firearm, a misdemeanor. Gerald Williams, who was driving the Lexus, faces a felony charge for “throwing a missile at a vehicle.”
Both drivers were taken into custody, and held on $2,000 bond.

Tyler said it’s clear in this case that things got out of hand. He said it could have been much worse, considering the two were driving at interstate speeds on a major highway.

“If someone cuts you off, the proper thing to do is call #77, the state police, and report it so they can try and take care of the problem,” he said.

Yup. The law doesn't care if it was a brick or a balloon thrown from a moving vehicle. Having been on the receiving end of something that was thrown, the logic is that a projectile coming from a vehicle can seriously injure or kill. We almost put someone in jail who road raged and threw a lighter out of her window and struck my wife's SUV.
