Vindicated! The other day, a group of juveniles driving in a white Jeep Cherokee threw a large rock at me, while I was riding near Northern High in Owings. They also almost ran me off the road. The rock struck my elbow (hard!) and almost caused me to crash...I was going about 20mph. I managed to get the tag number and before my bubble-head brain forgot it, I grabbed my cell phone and entered it in as a phone number to help me remember amidst my angry haze.
When I returned home, I called the Sheriff's office to report the incident...but I really did not have much faith that anything would come of it. I just figured they'd say something like..." thank you, we will keep an eye out for any further incidents with a vehicle of that description". But no ...they actually sent an officer to my home, and he was very grateful and took a full report even though there was no obvious damage to my bike or myself. He said they would run the tag, go to the residence and somehow get the info they needed to follow through.
I got a call later that day saying they had found the individual (a 17-year-old) and were charging him!
So if something similar happens to you and you manage to get the tag #...go ahead and follow through on it!
