    I often have battery operated tools in my car that can take over a small nation, but I would never consider using them, or a club(baseball bat in this case) on someone who was holding me up a few minutes.

    I'm sure the old guy was in this guys face, likely standing in front of his car, screaming at him, and buddy likely used his car to bump him out of the way, rather then trying to run him down. Even if this was the case, there is no excuse for hitting him with the car.

    Now it could be, as I'm sure will come out in court, that the old duffer was a real tough nut, and the MINI owner was fearing for his life. In which case hopefully he learned to either stay behind a slow driver, or pass them when safe, rather than going after someone with a bat.

    Come on, the old guy was hooked up to an oxygen bottle and his wife sitting next to him was steering the car. They both had cataracts and were suffering from Alzheimer. Of course they were driving slow, it was in a school zone. They were just minding their own business. Throw that whippersnapper in prison. Said the attorney representing them.:D

    I just need to know his batting average to complete the story. Or was it his ramming average. Either will do!

    Oh... no more MINI privileges for the whiny baby. Penalize him to an AMC Gremlin.
