    Bad: Yogurt vs Handgun

    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.

    Wow! That was an unexpected outcome.

    The guy armed with the Yogurt gets charged with a felony, while the dude with the handgun only gets a misdemeanor.

    Is Yogurt really that dangerous?

    Maybe by "carton" they meant a large container. I could imagine how that could be dangerous if thrown at a car at speed.... sort of like throwing a handful of change at another car on the highway. But I don't think it warrants a deadly force response.

    Two idiots is all I see here.

    In light of all the circumstances, I suspect that the Yogurt will get broken down to a misdemeanor when the DA sees it.

    If it covers your windshield while you are driving it could cause an accident. I once had an idiot (now former) friend pelt my windshield with vienna sausages while I was following the car he was in at 60 miles an hour. The wipers on my 67 mustang did nothing but smear the mess. I was driving blind until I thought to stick my head out the window and pull over.
