On the way home, a car buzzed and honked at him. He took a shortcut to the next street to get a closer view of the car/driver/tag and the driver noticed him, steered his car directly at him at full speed and my friend dove out of the way just in time within just inches of this crazed cager. He was not able to get the tag # because of the high speed and relative adrenaline that just went through him. He was able to snap a picture of the back of the car with his cell phone just as the car drove away but not close enough to get the tag.
He called the police, gave them the description and explained what happened. The police officer who saw him told him that without any accident, or bodily injury that it would be unlikely that anything could be done. The officer would not write a report.
The following day, my friend spotted the same car, at the same time, on the same road and noticed that it parked just a few blocks away at a bar. He was able to get the tag, but did not confront the driver. Then he went home and later told me exactly what is written here.
