Patience is a virtue, and so many of us have none. Such as the man who picked a fight with a neighborhood resident for blocking the road.
The resident had just come home from work and had to disconnect his trailer from his truck and walk it into the driveway.
As he was doing this a pick up truck rounded the corner and the driver yelled at him to get his blankety, blank, blank trailer out of the road, according to a police report.
This caused the resident to cuss back, and the situation went back and forth for a while.
The situation escalated to the victim taking off his shirt and the driver of the truck cracking the door as if to get out.
But the driver then drove off three or four houses down. Then a passenger jumped out of the truck and started yelling from up the street.
Then they grabbed something out of the back of the truck and walked back down to the victim’s house. The suspect’s then got in the man’s face while he was standing at the end of his driveway, the report said.
He was struck in the face by someone’s fist. He pushed back, and was punched again, he told police.
He was able to get away and call 911. When he did, he heard one subject say where he lived.
Police patrolled for the truck with no luck.
