“A 30-year-old Imperial man was issued a summons after he allegedly punched and damaged a windshield on a car following an apparent road-rage incident. The suspect said he punched the windshield because the driver of the car had cut him off in the drive-thru at the Burger King restaurant, 3600 W. Outer Road, in Arnold, according to Arnold Police.
Police were called at about 1:55 p.m. Dec. 11 to the restaurant, and the alleged victim, a 41-year-old Imperial man, said the 30-year-old damaged the 2013 Hyundai Accent the victim was driving. The 41-year-old said the 30-year-old got out of a 2018 Chevrolet Spark and started yelling at him for cutting him off in the drive-thru, the report said.
The 41-year-old said he got out of his car and argued with the 30-year-old, who eventually punched the victim’s windshield, shattering it, and then drove away from the restaurant. The damage to the windshield was estimated at $300, according to the report.”

Police were able to contact and identify the perpetrator from a video that captured his license plate. It was explained that he was angry due to the victim’s actions. On the one hand, if what is claimed is true, you can almost sympathize with the younger driver. However, no matter how infuriating, when someone cuts you off violence and property damage is never the solution.
