Road rage or another example of New York courtesy? You decide…
State police said that Danielle Barker, 32, was a passenger in a vehicle driving on the New York State Thruway Saturday night. A car behind the one that Barker was traveling in was reportedly trying to pass.
A New York State trooper commenting on the incident reported that the driver of Barker’s car would not change lanes and let the trailing car through.
When the car was eventually able to pass, police say Barker, 32, ‘hurled’ a cup of coffee through an open window of the passing car. Apparently unable to catch a simple cup of coffee, the coffee instead landed on a passenger in the vehicle.
Police pulled over the car Barker was traveling in and charged her with criminal mischief and harassment. The driver of the other car was ticketed for following too closely.
Barker was released and after being ordered to appear court.Tags: coffee, Danielle Barker, New York, Road Rage
