Yogurt vs. gun in Va. road rage case

By Washington Post editors

Virginia State Police are investigating a case of road rage involving two drivers -- one armed with a gun and one with armed with a carton of yogurt, NBC 4 reports.

A Toyota Rav4 cut off a Lexus on Interstate 95 in Quantico Friday afternoon, according to police spokesman Sgt. F.L. Tyler. After that, the driver of the Lexus started to tailgate the Toyota, and the Toyota driver responded by tapping on his brakes.

At some point, the driver of the Lexus pulled up and threw a container of yogurt at the Toyota. That’s when the driver of the Toyota displayed a small-caliber handgun, police said.

Don't diss the yogurt-flinger -- that Lactobacillus acidophilus is not to be trifled with.

In 2007 a woman from Stafford, Virginia was convicted of a felony for throwing a cup of ice at another car in traffic. She was convicted of "maliciously throwing a missile" and faced 2 to 5 years in prison but the judge reduced it to probation.

Felony charges (throwing a missile) for the Lexus driver; misdemeanors for the other. Both were held on $2000 bail.

So no, things haven't changed south of the Potomac.
