When he got out of the vehicle, he saw her yelling at him because of his Trump bumper sticker. “She said, ‘You voted for Trump?’” the man recalled.
He replied: “I said yes. She called me a racist and several other names.”
Then, the woman repositioned her car and hit his car with hers. “She bent my door and I had to lean back to avoid getting hit,” the man said. “She also hit the side of my car.”
He was missed by just a few inches. “Her tire was right next to my foot,” he told. “That could have ended really bad.”
The man’s claim was supported by his girlfriend who was with him when the incident happened.
Wright is slated to head back to court on Aug. 28 for a pretrial hearing.
