Angry at the way a woman had pulled her vehicle out in front of his own, a 34-year-old man followed her from Stamford into Darien, and when traffic stopped on Hoyt Street, he got out of his truck, reportedly kicked her vehicle and tried to open a door, then got into a “verbal altercation” with her, police said. Darien police got accounts of the incident from both the woman and the man and described what happened with this account, including accusations not proven in court:
Just after the road rage incident, the woman — who was crying and appeared extremely upset — approached a police officer at about 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 13, as the officer was working at a school crossing and told the officer about the incident. She said that she was pulling out of a CVS store in Stamford when she pulled onto a street in front of a white pickup truck. The driver of the pickup, Brian Parker of Knickerbocker Avenue in the Springdale section of Stamford, later told police he was mad at her because she was on her phone. After she pulled out in front of the pickup, the driver began following her.
