    I was driving down the road near the end of my day when a wild eyed, drug influenced, crazy looking man runs into the middle of the road waving his arms for me to stop. To avoid hitting him I stop the vehicle. He then charged the package car and jumped on my front bumper and began beating the vehicle hard while screaming at the top of his lungs unintelligible words. I'm thinking to myself "What the hell did I do to deserve this?" After a few seconds,I yelled "I'm calling the police" while showing him my cell phone as he continued to beat the vehicle. This did not stop him and I knew it would take over a half hour for the police to get to this rural area. At this point I was really worried and wished my doors were both closed in the summer heat. My fear was that he could have a knife or other weapon and would not have a problem using it. I decided that I'm not going out of the truck no matter what and if he tried to get into the vehicle I was going to use it to take him down. I then put the truck in reverse with the clutch engaged, I pressed the throttle hoping to scare him off the bumper. This did not work. At this point I decided to back the truck up with him on my bumper and maybe he would jump off. I released the clutch and began backing up. He just grabbed on and continued to stayed on my front bumper. I then decided I'm getting this idiot off. I threw the truck into first gear and accelerated rapidly and then slammed on the brakes. He went tumbling down in the middle of the road. I could tell he was alright but he tore up his knee with road rash. I swerved around him and took off. I went down the road and stopped the truck to call the Center to notify them of this incident. They told me to just come on back. Later, I found out the the crazy guy was arrested. However, the Police never contacted me. What a day.

    He was probably a QVC addict waiting for his latest trinket. Poor guy.

    You are lucky the crazy did not turn in a corporate concern or you would have been the one taken out of service. Been there before.

    Did you hear banjos playing in the background? The hood of those package cars sure do have a pretty smile.

    I once had a crack head try to light a cigarette on my headlight. For about five minutes. Didn't try to scare him off, it was too funny.

    When you get into a situation where your life is threatened and getting out of it is all you want, you don't think about corporate complaints. Next time Charles Manson jumps on your hood you will understand.

    That is crazy, you did the right thing but consider this: You can now be indentified by anyone from your center that knows the story.
