Not your typical road rage incident

Editor’s note: Plumas News receives CHP reports from both the Quincy and Susanville area CHP offices. We typically just share those that involve injury accidents of local residents or those that might have been viewed by a number of people. Sometimes the Susanville office releases what they describe as “Report of Arrest/Unusual Incident.” This is one of those arrests:

Susanville CHP dispatch received a call Oct. 27 of a possible road rage incident on State Route 36, east of Riverside Drive. The call involved a SUV and an 18 wheel tractor-trailer. The tractor-trailer had attempted to merge into the left lane, and had allegedly attempted to force the SUV into opposing traffic. The incident also included allegations that the truck driver honked his air horn multiple times and was tailgating the SUV.  Both vehicles continued southbound on US 395, until the SUV turned left at the Susanville Airport.

While the SUV was turning, the driver of the tractor-trailer threw a 24 oz open bottle of urine at the SUV. Unfortunately, the SUV had its windows rolled down, and the open bottle of urine went into its cabin spraying urine throughout the vehicle. The victim, turned around and followed the tractor-trailer, and called 911. CHP dispatch notified a patrolling CHP officer, who located the tractor-trailer and conducted an enforcement stop and subsequent investigation. The CHP officer upon completion of his investigation submitted a complaint to be filed with Lassen County District Attorney’s office.
