Man arrested after crash for stomping on car roof



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — After two cars collided Aug. 18 on Peachtree Parkway and Ronald Reagan Blvd., the driver of one of the cars got out and stomped on the roof of the other car.

The 43-year-old driver of a Lexus said she was traveling northbound on Peachtree Parkway through the intersection of Ronald Reagan Blvd. when the driver of a Mitsubishi entered her lane causing her to strike the left side of the car.

Once the cars came to a stop, she said she sat in the car momentarily trying to gather herself when she heard and felt the car beginning to shake. She and witnesses said they saw the 24-year-old driver of the Mitsubishi exit his car and run over to the other car, climb on top and start stomping on the roof.

The Mitsubishi driver said he had a green turn arrow to turn left from Ronald Reagan Blvd. to Peachtree Parkway southbound.

While turning, he said he saw the Lexus out of his peripheral vision approaching from the left side, and both drivers attempted to avoid a collision but were unsuccessful.

After, he said he exited his car and was shaken. He walked to the other car, climbed on top and began “tapping” his foot on the roof asking the driver to stop.

He was placed under arrest for criminal damage to property in the second degree. Firearms, military paperwork, a marijuana pipe and marijuana were also found in the car.
