If you haven’t yet seen the actual video of the incident, it’s really remarkable.
Kudos to the Colorado Highway Patrol (and the prosecutors) for actually investigating; and bringing the driver to justice.
According to the Daily Camera, driver “James Ernst pleaded guilty to two counts of harassment — a Class 3 misdemeanor — and two counts of improper use of a horn — a traffic offense”, and received 12 months probation, including a court-ordered anger management class.
I’m starting a new tag today, intentional, to highlight intentional mis-deeds; which are both far less common than unintentional (but still dangerous) behavior, and in some types of cases can be hard to prove. Nothing to do with this case — nobody was injured — I’ve also always wondered about insurance policy’s “intentional acts exclusion” — if an insured person intentionally runs over somebody with their car, is their auto insurance off the hook for damages?
