First, I second the notion that it should be taken to the respective agency with haste.Malum Prohibitum said:Don't wait to call until everybody forgets who these four jackasses are. If you call today, they will know who they are . . .

Brake checking? Bad enough to be an assault? Go take an arrest warrant from the magistrate. They have to show up at a hearing for that. I should think that would get some attention.
If departments would simply fire people like this, we would have a lot fewer issues with law enforcement. That will not happen, of course. Let us know what happens.
As for taking out a warrant, an identity would be needed for the application. Listing "some guy driving a blue car" wouldn't be sufficient. :wink:
I don't think "break checking" would be sufficient PC on its own for a charge of assault. All the guy would have to say is that he saw traffic ahead of him stopping so he hit his breaks or that he did so to avoid a vehicle changing lanes.
What is described would sound more like aggressive driving rather than assault. I don't know about Chatham County, but in my experience the Magistrate Court would refer a warrant application for a traffic charge to whatever court hears 40 code cases in that jurisdiction. Here it would be the Probate Court. At the old place it would have been Municipal Court.
