Police in Washington arrested a man with a self-aware license plate after what they called, “a series of bad decisions.”
According to KCPQ, a Bellevue man driving a red Camaro with a vanity license plate that reads “DIRTBAG” was arrested Sunday afternoon at the Brown Bear car wash in Factoria.
Authorities said the unnamed 40-year-old man was involved in a road rage incident, or rather, a parking lot rage incident. Police responded after reports that two cars were involved in a minor rear-end crash.
The driver of the other car, make unknown, got out to take pictures of the damage. Camaro guy got out, allegedly pointed a gun at the victim and made threats.
Then, when police showed up, Camaro guy wouldn’t get out of his car. When police tried to pull him out he fought them. One officer was punched in the face.
Camaro guy allegedly threatened to kill the police and, to make things worse, he reportedly made disparaging comments about the victim’s perceived ethnicity.
Bellevue police finally tased and arrested him.
Camaro guy is expected to be charged with first-degree assault with a firearm, assault on a police officer, obstructing police, malicious harassment, and resisting arrest.
It is unclear if the Camaro ever got cleaned.
