I was in an incident today where a driver cut me off and slammed on his brakes to attempt to make me rear end him. After this he got out of his car, yelled at me, told me to come out of mine and fight. I remained in my car and then started calling 911 when it was clear he wasn’t leaving. He saw me on the phone so he started to leave but threw a rock which hit my window first before leaving. Unfortunately I have no video evidence. I did get a picture of the license plate and the man’s back.
I filed a police report and they called me and told me they made contact with the driver and he admitted to everything except throwing the rock.
What are my options?
If I press the charges what could he be charged with, since he didn’t admit to the rock throwing and it’s my word against his? If I’m willing to pay the legal fees, would he have to pay them back if I won the case? Will he know my personal information such as name and address if I press charges? And finally, I don’t want to waste the police’s time, but I do think this menace should face consequences. Is it typical to press charges in a case like this or would the police view it as wasting their time?
