asofel,

One time, I was in Buckhead in Atlanta. Friday night or something and streets were pretty packed. Some sedan (Taurus or something) with a middle-aged couple stops at a light and just barely taps this blinged out SUV. I'm talking, not even a scratch or hint of paint or bump or anything, just barely tap bumpers. This was pre-Escalade days. Maybe a Navigator or something, I dunno. This huge black dude gets out of the truck, reaches in, grabs a baseball bat. Walks up to the Taurus (note, this is a completely bumper-to-bumper packed major street with tons of people on the sidewalks) and starts slamming it into the hood, I dunno, about 5 times. Then the light changes, he goes back to his car, they drive away.

Crazy!

mmbt,

In all seriousness, that was one of the craziest episodes I ever witnessed. It was like an entire city block of cars and people were all just sitting there watching, stunned.

i have a baseball in each of two cupholders in my car (so that they don't roll around),

good story. ive had my own confrontations but never boil to this extent. i would feel quite justified w/ this outcome.

i like your explanation for why you keep baseballs in the car. theyre there to keep them from rolling around in the cupholders. duh.

asofel,

Back when that happened ('96 maybe), Buckhead was mainly a white fratboy type hangout area and stuff like this was definitely WAY out of the ordinary.

Think of the worst bar scene you know, then multiply it by about 1,000,000,000. That's Buckhead. I live in Atlanta and have partied there too many times. Moondogs, Peachtree Tavern, CJ's for those familiar. Every year it gets worse and more ridiculous. Traffic is a joke. I think if you own a car with 28 in rims or an SUV with TVs playing porn and a system playing REALLY loud music you're required to be in THE ATL on Friday/Saturday night. If you don't have three or four scantily clad sistas in your ride already, you have to bring traffic to a complete halt while you hang out your window yelling foul things at any and all females you see. Sadly, it really IS dangerous. Getting drunk and picking fights down there is a very bad idea.

asofel,

Apparently over the years it has become much rowdier with much more gang and other such activity.

I'm pretty surprised at all the back-patting you're getting on this one. This guy may or may not have committed some minor moving violations, and fled from the scene of an "accident" (with no visible damage), but your actions were well beyond a reasonable (or, I'm guessing, legal) response. You're lucky you didn't end up in jail for assault or worse or get into a conflict for which your baseballs might not have been adequate protection.

FWIW tapping on the brakes when someone's tailgating you and you can't switch lanes isn't a dick move--I always thought it was pretty standard. (Sometimes tailgaters just don't realize how close they are or that you can't switch lanes at the moment or expect you to speed up or whatever.) A quick tap on the brakes and almost all of the time they'll get the message, brake a bit, and let you pass into the other lane.

Slamming on your brakes and making the tailgater brake hard is a dick move. Throwing two baseballs in retaliation is unbelievably stupid and reckless.
