He claimed that they instigated the situation by ignoring him and his attempts to merge properly while utilizing his blinker. They claim they did not see him and that his response was frightening and that they felt he might harm them.

At a local restaurant, a patron was accused of assaulting members of the staff, including the branch manager, after he learned that he spent more money on the bill than he imagined. Much to the duress of other patrons in the restaurant, he apparently raised his voice and clamped his hands into the form of a fist in several occurrences.
