    What a piece of Garbage. In some of the photos he looks like he wants to try and hit the police officer. Send him to jail.

    POS! I’ve had 2 people hit and run on my vehicle and was lucky enough to track both drivers down – one being a commuter bus in DC that took off my entire bumper and when I got out of my car and ran halfway up the block there was a cop siting in his cruiser. He pursued the bus, who had a busload of passengers and he claimed he did not know he hit me. My bumper was completely taken off my vehicle! People like that need to own up and can’t get away with this stuff. Oh and the first guy who hit me there was a witness. I tracked the guy down at his house the next day. Turns out he had just sparked a blunt before taking off and backing into my car, so he got the hell outta there. It always comes back on you one way or another!

      Honestly, buses are pretty bumpy rides to begin with. Pretty hard to tell the difference between a large pothole and an Explorer in a bus. Glad ybou caught up with the driver, though.

      My advice: go on Amazon and buy a G1W-C dashcam. Simple and inexpensive peace of mind.

      Looks like he’s resisting arrest and/or think about assaulting a police officer but this is probably just police brutality.

    I hope everyone that was in the car are ok.
    They need to keep his sorry butt off of the streets before he kills someone!

    In the state Maryland these dirt bags with no license get caught time and time again and get released back on the streets

      Wanna bet there’s no insurance on the vehicle.

    All I got to say is I’m glad everyone is ok. But the female in the black car is the hottest girl alive.

    • brian on May 18, 2015 at 1:11 pm

      He thought so also, she obviously distracted him with her hotness. Come on, the look on his face shows his innocence…LOL

    Those poor babies. I hope everyone in that fusion was ok. As for the worthless hog, I hope she gets you for every penny your worth plus more and that you get some extensive jail time since you seem to like to drive without a license because you feel so damn entitled.

      I seriously doubt he is financially worth much…

    • brian on May 18, 2015 at 1:14 pm

      well lets see, he didn’t have a license so that would be a good indicator he has no insurance. I am thinking the “every penny” he is worth would be the 10, 5, and two 1’s he might have had in his pocket at the time. Her insurance is going to pick up this tab and as a reward to her they might even raise her rates…that is if they don’t drop her all together! What a wonderful system.

        They can take restitution from his pay checks, you know if he has a job.
