I hope Tigerman’s around to read this.
A friend of mine was involved in a traffic-related altercation about 2 months ago and the police recently contacted him, as the other party wishes to do something. As yet, my friend does not know whether the guy wants money or whether he wants to press charges.
The background: My friend got into an argument at a set of traffic lights with another scooter-rider, which culminated in my friend giving the guy a clout upside the head and driving off. Apparently, the plaintiff has a pedestrian witness who would be able to identify “a white guy.”
The plaintiff, who claims to be a professor, got my friend’s plate number and went to the cops, who have requested the pleasure of his presence at the cop shop.
So far, my friend has been in the “deny, deny, deny” mode, but is now wondering what his best course of action is, as well as the likelihood of his being tried and convicted. He needs to present himself on Tuesday and feels that the guy want more than just a cash settlement.
Anyone care to comment with something other than comments on the guy’s stupidity? He’s already had more than enough of that.
