Spotted this in the Examiner, pretty odd story: there was a fender bender in the neighborhood between an off-duty detective and a guy in a $120,000 Porsche. There were some profanities and gestures after the crash, both blamed each other. The detective called the police, the Porsche guy was arrested and jailed for 14 hours for reckless driving, but was later found not guilty. He sued, and the detective, who described herself as having a high "level of pissitivity," was found to be liable to pay $450,000 to the Porsche driver.
Weird stuff. And that was before all the road construction!
