Girlfriend and her GLOCK thwart road rage attack
I'm SOO proud of her!
Today her and Maddy were running errands in the Lakewood area, picking up a text book, etc. She is driving to get coffee when a new F250 speeds up on her bumper and honks at her (she's doing just over the speed limit). She continues at her pace and the truck starts swaying back and forth in the lane as aggressive tailgaters sometimes do, yelling at her from the open window.
The coffee shop comes up and she pulls off, and the man follows her. She puts her purse on the seat and proceeds to the drivethru window and places her order. The man, a large contractor type, comes up to the driver's side rear door area between the car and the shop and starts screaming, cursing, and making threats at the top of his lungs, FREAKING OUT. The barista was mortified and really couldn't do much of anything but watch. Mil was telling him "Calm down, or I'm going to call the cops. Get back in your truck..." etc, not escalating the situation. He just kept getting madder and madder. Finally he comes up and puts his hands on the sill and starts to lean in when she pulled the GLOCK from her purse, not pointing it at him. He DISAPPEARS. The barista gave her a free drink lol.
This happened about 10 mins before I got off work, and she texts me this understated msg; "Something scary just happened....call me ASAP". I call her and she told me everything and I had her call the cops, one to open the possibility that he might be prosecuted for the crime that that road rage is here, and two to make sure the cops had her story if he were to call and report brandishing. The cops had this to say; "Well that's nice, call back if you have any further problems". Wonderful.
What kind of meathead puts a mother and daughter in danger on the road, then comes and freaks out and threatens a mother MUCH smaller then himself with a little girl on board no less?? I was so pissed, but everything did turn out ok. Guess he wasn't counting on Mr. GLOCK....
