A road rage in Texas took an unexpected and bizarre turn over the weekend, leaving two men covered in white spray paint and one behind bars facing felony charges.
Bizarre Road Rage in Texas Leaves Two Men Doused in White Spray Paint
The road rage in Texas incident occurred on Friday in the bustling area near a lengthy strip mall in Spring, a high-population census-designated place in the Houston metropolitan area. The road rage in Texas unfolded when a driver’s brief display of annoyance triggered a chain reaction of aggressive actions, resulting in a spray paint showdown. According to Harris County Constable Precinct 4 Mark Herman, who issued a terse press release along with photographs of the aftermath on Facebook, the road rage in Texas started when a driver in a small SUV became distracted with his phone and failed to maintain a single lane. Frustration mounted when the distracted driver didn’t respond to a green light, prompting the driver behind him to honk the horn. The honking proved to be the catalyst for a bizarre escalation of the road rage in Texas. In retaliation, the first driver began throwing objects at the honking vehicle while both cars were still in motion. The road rage in Texas situation escalated further when the vehicles eventually came to a stop, and an altercation ensued between the two drivers. It was at this point that things took an unusual twist.
In a fit of anger, one of the drivers, identified as David Winston, 35, allegedly reached for a can of white spray paint and used it to paint the face, vehicle, and even break the back window of the honking driver’s car. The other driver, not to be outdone, retaliated by spraying Winston’s face with white paint as well. Law enforcement arrived at the road rage in Texas scene to find both men’s faces covered in white spray paint. David Winston was subsequently arrested for the road rage in Texas and charged with Felony Criminal Mischief. He was booked into the Harris County Jail, and his bond was set at $1,500.00 out of the 179th District Court. Felony criminal mischief carries the possibility of several years in prison, depending on the severity of the damage caused by the road rage in Texas. As of now, Winston remains no longer in jail, according to records reviewed by Law&Crime.
