So, I’m driving home round midnight on the 4th of July and I’m sitting at a red light. I look up to see the car in front of me back all the way up to my bumper.. I’m figuring the guy had gone too far out into the intersection and was trying to get behind the lines. A Hispanic male (maybe between 35-40 yrs old) gets out of the car and walks to my window. Assuming that he may have had an issue with his car or maybe a question to ask me, I cracked my window slightly it to see what was up. All of a sudden without warning he starts pointing his finger at me and hollers out “You’re in big trouble my man. You hit my car!!!!”. He walks to the back of my car to take my tag number and then screams out “Somebody call the police… Somebody call 911″… I’m sitting there like “Awwww hell nawwww… this fool is not about to get me caught up off some nonsense”. My first thought was to get the hell outta dodge. So as I tried to drive around dude, he stood in front of my car and slammed his hands on my hood. I tried to maneuver my car for about 30 seconds and everywhere I moved, dude moved with me. While this was going on, cars were passing on both sides of the street, he continues yelling for someone to call the police and people were looking to see what was going on. To be honest, after he put his hands on my car I initially wanted to jump and clock him, but then I really woulda been in trouble. Instinctively, I put the gear in reverse and drove like an entire block backwards dodging cars and what not. I had to get out of there. I don’t know what slim was tryna pull, but I didn’t want any part of it.
The whole ordeal was crazy. I didn’t hit him and our cars never touched. I don’t know if dude was drunk or what. I had to not be ghetto for a moment, cuz I’m tellin’ you when he blocked my car and put his hands on my hood, I was ready to jump out on him. Then there really wouldve been some mess for the police to come for. So I had to roll out with the quickness. In my haste to depart that situation, I didn’t get his tag or anything. All I know was that it was a blue Honda Civic and the guy looked like actor Edward James Olmos with long hair and had a raspy voice.
It was a lil’ bit unnerving, because I’m on the phone with my fiancee the entire time. I was like “uh oh… I think dude in front of me broke down or somethin'”… I sure as hell didn’t expect for all that craziness to happen. But dude start hollering and screaming in the streets like a madman, I was like “time to bounce”… I didn’t expect him to literally step in front of my car each time I tried to go around his car. That kinda had me shook cuz had I hit the gas, he would been on the windshield. All I kept saying while I was on the phone with her was “This *expletive deleted* is tryna catch me slippin’… I can’t believe this *expletive deleted*”. So I had to back up and drive in reverse to get out. He then pulled off from the light and went the opposite direction. This happened in Beltsville, MD (not too far from the Beltway exit) right at Power Mill Road & Old Gunpowder Road for folks who know the area.
I suppose I did the right thing. I’m still here sitting here to talk about it. For all I know, that guy might’ve really had other plans.
Glad to be safe & sound
Peace & Love…
