Road rage leads to man leaning through window, yelling
At 3:20 p.m. May 14 an officer met with a man at the police station about an incident of road rage. The man said he was in a turning lane at the intersection of Main and 14th Streets and a blue SUV did a U-turn without signaling. The man said he yelled, "(expletive) nut," and the other driver heard him. He drove home and while getting out of his car, the other driver showed up, stuck his head and shoulders through the man's window and began yelling at him. A neighbor got the license plate information of the other driver and an officer contacted the other driver. The other driver admitted he handled the situation in a poor manner. Eventually the officer issued the other driver a citation for disorderly conduct and was ticketed $83 plus a $7 surcharge.
Officer convinces driver to work on safety: At 10:54 a.m. May 15, an officer was dispatched to the 900 block of Emerald Drive because an anonymous person reported the driver of a red pickup truck has been driving aggressively, backing out of a driveway quickly, taking off quickly and spinning tires at a stop sign. The officer spoke with the driver's mother who said she worried about his driving and asked the officer to speak with him. The son was receptive to the information and admitted he drove a bit aggressively, he also explained he put a new clutch in and had popped it a few times, which may have squealed the tires. He said he would work on his driving safety.
