On August 4, a man was allegedly driving erratically in Houston in a busy part of the city. The driver was reportedly weaving in and out of his lane. When the man stopped at a traffic light, he reportedly did not immediately proceed when it turned from red to green. The driver of the car behind him tooted their horn in a purported attempt to get his attention.
After both cars were again in motion, the man who reportedly idled at the green light for too long allegedly began to throw items from their car. The items started striking the other vehicle, and the driver believed it was an intentional act. Both cars came to a stop again, and the situation reportedly escalated.
