It’s pretty hard to predict road rage and once you become the target of a mad motorist, the best you can do is to keep your distance. That’s a lesson Sandra Poteet – who had a carload of kids with her when Roderick Woodward made her the focus of his ire – has probably learned. And she almost learned it the really hard way. As cbslocal.com recounts what happened, “She first noticed the suspect’s truck driving erratically at a toll booth several miles before the exit,” where he shot her back window out with a BB gun. What’s baffling, though, is . . .
Why the hell did she think catching up to and passing a guy who’s driving erratically and displaying all the symptoms of being drunk was a good way to go?
(Trooper Vinton) Wallace said Woodward was driving a Toyota Tundra, and Poteet was driving a Ford Explorer. Poteet, he said, tried to pass Woodward but he kept speeding up and would not let her go by.
Finally, she was able to pass and pull in front of him, but when she did, Woodward began “high beaming” her, trying to blind her, according to Wallace. As they neared the Exit 7 exit, Wallace said Woodward pulled out a BB gun and shot out the rear window.
The three kids in Poteet’s car were showered with shattered glass, but no one was hurt. It took almost a month for the staties to track Woodward down. From unionleader.com:
With only a description of the vehicle to go by, Wallace obtained a search warrant for the EZ Pass listing of vehicles that went through the toll about the time of the incident, which led to Woodward.
That’s Woodward in the photo above. And wouldn’t you just love to know what’s printed on the rest of that shirt? In any case, after his intemperate display, Woodward’s now our latest IGOTD champion. And we sincerely hope that doesn’t enrage him nearly as much as his legal bills eventually will.
