A Dale City man brandished a nail gun and rammed another man’s car three times in a road rage incident in Woodbridge early Wednesday, Prince William County police said.

Dionel Barrios, 28, of Dale City, apparently became enraged during a dispute with another driver, age 18, at about 12:25 a.m. in the 14000 block of Smoketown Road. It wasn’t immediately clear what sparked the feud.

Barrios was charged with felony hit and run and brandishing a weapon. No court date was available.

Don't know if this guy is illegal or not...but he's obviously criminally stupid.
Who intentionally rams another car 3 times because he cut him off or whatever? Keep a little perspective.

According to WaPo's User and Discussion Guidelines, posts that contain advertising or solicitation of any kind are not allowed.

Why then is the post by briansusan advertising a website for car insurance allowed?

I think they posted it because this article didn't involve an accident. On those articles, they always attempt to hawk some ambulance chasing attorney.

Gee, I wonder where this dude is from? I say that it's too bad this fellow isn't back home where he belongs. Somewhere south of the border. How far south is anybody's guess - I wonder if he has a sister.

Blah, Blah, Blah...I'm guessing someone could tell you that storm clouds are black and you would call them racist.

The nail gun a weapon? Most nail guns that I'm familiar with require the gun to be pressed against something solid as a safety, before it will allow you to drive a nail.
