HEY! I have done that too....
So here goes my story:
I was driving down the road and came to a stop light, dude next to me ran the light when the TURN lane turned green. I LOL'd at him, because... well, I've done that before too. Light turns green, and I go. I catch up to him because he's OBVIOUSLY freaked out about what he just did, and he's going slow to get up to speed. We both are going about 45-50 MPH, and some ASSHOLE decides to turn out of a neighborhood into MY LANE in front of me, so I either A, brake and plow into the back of him or B, floor it and cut the guy off next to me. I chose B. I then go through a park to meet up with my friend and we get into his Camry, and leave. He says "That guy over there followed you in..." and I look back, and he's following us now, as he was doing before when I pulled into the park. We go to sonic, and he's still behind us, an then TWO POLICE CARS pull into the parking lot, and park behind a Maroon 2012 single cab Dodge Ram, same color as mine, same height, easily mistakable as a Toyota Tacoma... right??? Ha, well they knock on the door and ask for the owner of the truck to come speak to them, and the kid who I worked with went out and talked to them, I over heard them, and said, "That was me at the park" and sent the kid back in.
Well, they sat me down behind his truck, and the guy who was following me, was out of his car and said he was an off duty cop and that his wife hated when he did this, and accused me of doing 80 while weaving in and out of traffic, and offroading in the park. He said he saw me do that, because his family and him were in the park at the time, and that, 2 miles away, where I cut that guy off, said he saw me doing 80. I was also told, straight up, by one of the officers that, "You are going to lose your license."
I got a Reckless Driving ticket, and have court this Tuesday, I hired an attorney, whom by the way, said that they messed up pretty big, and I will see if I get to keep my license!
