Wife just got attacked by some road rage asshole!!

Up in Los Angeles heading Westbound on Wilshire Blvd just a short time ago! Some douchebag in a black Mercedes E300 with Fletcher Jones paper plates attached was behind her at a stop light. Apparently she was a little slow getting on the gas when the light goes green so this idiot lost his shit. first he goes around her with all sorts of friendly gestures which my wife apparently ignores then proceeds to cut her off not once, but three times trying to run her off the road. Well on the third go around my wife lays into the horn pretty potent like and I guess that did it.

He slams on the brakes right in front of her blocking her car between his and the cars directly behind her. Tight in the middle of a busy boulevard mind you. He jumps out of his car and starts threatening to KILL HER all while trying to break the windows with his hands trying to get in at her! She had the sense to make sure the doors were locked and called 911. At that point, he saw that she was on the phone and jumped back into his car and fled but not before breaking the side mirror. She started to follow but the 911 operator told her any accidents would be her fault should one occur under those conditions.

Anyway, white guy, late 20's early 30's, brown hair, short with medium build and a possible lip piercing. It's a long shot but if this sounds familiar to anyone I would just be tickled to hear about it. She stuck around and filed a police report but I'm not holding my breath as it's probably not high on their radar as things go.

Needless to say, if I were there it would have been a different outcome

Yeah thank god that auto glass is pretty hard to break with bare hands. She got the make and model but it had paper plates attached (Fletcher Jones Newport Beach).

I told my close friend who is a detective with LAPD and he said he would look into it. They have cameras usually all over on top of buildings etc. Prints are all over the windshield according to my wife. I will dust and tape this evening. We will get this guy.

She does carry pepper spray on her keychain but took it off for security on a recent LAX flight and hasn't put it back on yet.

Horrible story. Glad to here your wife is okay.

LAPD too busy looking for cars with no front license plate and/or front window tint (see thread: "I'm really getting sick of the police harassing me + window tint question..")

I'm assuming it's a rather new car since it has dealer plates?

Contact the dealer, say you've filed a police report.

see if they can assist in helping find that person

I don't think they sell THAT many E300s
I didn't even know they made e300s?

I agree with this! How many can there possibly be? You'll get the SOB.

Agreed. Upon looking at the Mercedes web site I see that they make an E350 but no 300. So it's quite possible this is the vehicle in question. After all I think the wifey was kinda sidetracked and could have gotten that mixed up at the moment.

+2 - definitely contact the dealer, or get your friend to do it, and see if they can help find this guy.

Like others have said there are some crazy a$$ people in this world

if your wife ran that SOB over and claimed later that she feared for her life and acted in self defense, I would never ever vote to convict her if I was on the jury

I hear that and I told her to do the same but I guess she was stuck in pretty tight between the two others.
