Probably drunk, on drugs, and/or showing off to his friends. No excuse...a car can be a weapon ...and in the wrong hands, can cause way too much grief. That dude needs a lesson. No slack. Stay on azimuth...don't let this fade away.

It's not all. But I will tell you, I talglate people who drive slow in the far left two lanes, or leave too many car lengths in traffic. Has nothing to do with me driving an SUV/truck. Some people just feel they own the road though.

This kid will undoubtedly do it again. He'll end up doing it to somebody who is pissed off and has a gun. Karma's a bitch.

Some punk kids purposely rear end my dad one time. He got out and they were just laughing their heads off. He made some comments to them which they ignored. He wrote down their plate as they drove off.

Why didn't you floor it when you saw what he was doing though? I would have called the cops immediately while seeing him do this.

besides the fact that id be pissed if he got away (never know if its his car, police cant prive he was driver w/ plates) its a good excuse to drive like a crazy person
+1

Exactly what I would've done. No way some punk in an SUV is getting away from me in my BMW. And if I had him cornered and he got out thinking he ws going to kick my ass, I would unleash the hurt like never before.

No one, and I mean no one messes with my BMW. If they do they have to go through me first.

Yup. One day he will get his. Just like the SUV following the Z4 video.

I wonder what those kids would've said if your day grabbed a steel baton, like the one the police use, out of his glovebox, fliped it out, and started walking towards them.

In my case I actually wouldn't mind if the guy did this to me, come to think of it, so long as the police got him. I've been eyeing that dual exhaust bumper from the 335i for a while now.

If he was a member on this forum, I am sure you would be able to verbally rape him until he never wants to drive again...

anyway, that sucks, I hate punk kids that do stuff like that...

Sorry to hear about that, bro.
A similar story happened to my friend a while back. This guy was trying to provoke him to race with him and my friend didn't want to. The guy was pissed off and tail gated my friend for a block or so. Little did he know that my friend was an off duty LAPD officer

It does happen in H Town but the difference is that when you do it in Houston, you have to be willing to pay for the consequences of your action. And I don't mean the consequence of going to jail or a ticket. With more than half of Houstonians carrying a gun in their car (and this statistic of over 50% is not something I made up) is something you have to think about (I know these little punks don't think much). I know you might visit Houston alot but its little different when you live here and watch the news daily. People get shot on the roadway frequently in Texas for something less than hitting a car for the hell of it.

Texas doesn't even allow open carry like in Virginia

Accidental brandishing with a concealed weapon permit is also an arrestable offense in TX

When I get around to my inevitable "Pics of me doing your girlfriend" thread, I'll certainly host a gallery spread so as not to be misleading. This is not really a thread that needs photographic illustration.


I filed the report over the phone with a very bored desk cop who sounded even more bored when we got to the 'no visible damage' portion of the quiz. I must say that the hit was substantial, and I'm astounded that the plastic rear bumper survied so well. I'll find out tomorrow when I wash it if there's scuffing. Anyway, the cop said that they would 'vestigate' the claim and recommended that I file a claim for even minuscule etching on my rear bumper !! so that my ins. co. !! would track him down. Honestly, with the potentially homicidal nature of what I described, I thought I'd get a squad-car write-up and a knock on his parent's door. He even declined the pics of the car claiming policy about email attachments. Said I would host the pic and send it HTML, but still not interested. At this point my rage morphed into despair and regret. I have along list of hindsight points, the main one not following him until a squad car arrived.... but I also think that his "teenage fearlessness" desperation would have led me on a chase (already clocking ~120mph in pursuit) resulting in my ass winding up in jail for weeks and his in juvie for few days.

I asked about other reports potentially phoned in about said incident (many witnesses, major havoc), but 'he didn't have access to that material'. This is, after all, an event that began with a psycho driving down the highway pseudo-ramming cars for shits and giggles, and cumulating in him actually ramming a (6wk old $50K) car, nearly flipping his SUV as he jumped a curb / side-slid across the grass median, and provoked a high-speed chase through a closed subdivision (that, I am partially responsible for, but it was like Carl Lewis playing tag with a fat kid). He nearly caused a multi-car pileup in heavy traffic and I (at least) hope that they'll contact the mouth breathing felcher's mom and elicit a 'no xbox for a week grounding' ..... maybe a new rule about smoking meth and driving the mommobile at the same time, but better yet, a "brutal beating from dad, leaving the scene + wreckless endangerment + assault with a deadly weapon' charges and a painful vacay at juvie, but that's dreaming, it appears.

Maybe something will come of the report, but I seriously doubt it based on the mockingly glib tone of the ossifer and the lack of physical evidence (aside from a big swathe of median and tire tracks, LOL, CSI sleeps well tonight). I chastise myself for even giving chase, but pat my neo-adult self on the back for not beating him to death with my bare hands.

As for the multiple posts from Texas suggesting firearms application.... well, I don't know what to say. I've never been so ready to kill someone in my life, and I'm glad that I didn't have my chrome-plated Barrett .50 cal in the trunk ( it was in the shop for BORS installation), or I'd be talking 335 with some very interested pedophiles in the Washington County pokey.

My friend's husband is a semi-psychotic Sherrif's Deputy, and I'll see if I can't get him to kick the kid's door down and slap moms around a bit for restitution. If a happy ending comes from this, I'll post it up, but don't hold your breath. I at least want to find out the kid's name so that I can testify at his inevitable vehic. manslaughter trial.

Should have called the popo on your cell and stalked him till they showed up. North on freebush, turning east on main, etc. Also, be adamant that you want to press charges. Attempted murder, reckless endangerment, felony hit and run, etc. come to mind. Throw the book at the little snot.

Yeah, that was what I attempted to do for the first few minutes after cornering him, but he (and my assfaced self) was driving at 'SUV top speed'(i.e. a deadly and, for him, uncontrollable, 60+mph) through suburbia just as school was letting out. I have iDrive, bluetooth, but the "non emergency" number was not available and 911 quickly snubbed my 'Dukes of Hazard-esque' request for backup, and they don't forward the call when they file you under jackass as no one is OD'ing or stabbing a cop in the face with a Rambo knife. It just dosent work out like I previously thought it would when I snapped pics of the asshole's car and thought my impecable drivng/citizenship record would carry a simple investigation of, what well could have resulted in, vhicular manslaughter by a pubescent oxygen-theif. Again, I'm not going to defend the fact that I didn't follow him at speed untill A) Krispie Kreeme closed and a cop was dispatched or B) he wrecked and killed someone. On his desperate maladroit driving terms, following him was not an option. He was WAY more invested in this game than me. I never should have drifted two corners and wound out a 1/4+ mile sprint in catching up with him in the 1st place. What prize did I get other than a big bag of regret and a lingering sense of stupidity for believing that my Barney Fief style 'citizeens areeast' plan would be anything but the impotent comedy that it was. . In the end, it just embarrases me that I didn't write it of as urban attrition. Please, no more.. 'you should have killed the bastard's family' posts. It's been a shitty day as it is without all of the armchair quarterbacking that I accidentally solicited. Blaah.

Thanks for the sympathetic ears. We all love our cars, but hopefully not more than freedom and a clear conscience. Now if I had installed that aero rear bumper , you'd be watching this from helicopter cam on Nightline.
