BELLEVUE, Washington — Takes one to know one.
A man sporting a “Dirt Bag” vanity plate on his red Camaro, was arrested after rear-ending another motorist in a road rage incident and then punching out a cop, police said.
The 40-year-old man, whose name was not immediately released, was driving into a car wash driveway in Bellevue, Washington on Sunday when he got into a fight with the driver of the car in front of him.
The Camaro driver then rear-ended the other car, and when the other driver got out to take pictures of the damage, the sports car owner allegedly pulled out a gun and made threats, police said.
Cops say that when they arrived, the hopping mad Camaro driver had gotten back in his car and refused to obey police commands to get out. When officer tried to physically remove him, he began fighting with them and punched one officer in the face.
He then threatened to kill the officers and made slurs and the other driver’s perceived ethnicity, cops said.
Ultimately, cops were forced to use a taser to subdue the man. He was charged with assault with a firearm, assault on a police officer, malicious harassment, obstructing police, and resisting arrest.
