Leaving the neighborhood, some redneck looking guy wearing a ravens jersey starts walking into the middle of the suburban neighborhood street (not a main road) . So at first thought, I didnt think too much of this guy at all and proceeded to drive. he gets closer and closer, does not make any hand/wave motion and keeps his arms at his waist side, nor does he say anything. Going at around 12mph he walks up to the very side of my driver door as im passing him and im thinking to myself, he is just doing one of those arrogant keep-on-walking the road to-barley-miss the rear end of the car, kind of pass. the second i fully pass him, he punches my rear windshield and ended up putting a small hairline crack at the top.

So details on my car, 330i zhp, rouge engineering exhaust. Its really not that loud of an exhaust. Background on myself, 7 years of driving and zero speeding tickets, zero accidents, not a day of wreckless driving.

Anyway, i slam on my breaks and roll my window down only to yell at this guy by asking him wtf his wrong with him. he yells back while walking towards my driver side window, saying i have an illegal exhaust. This is the continuing convo:

me - so you decide to hit my car because of that???
him - Youve been going up and down this neighborhood with that illegal exhaust all the time! (which is not true), i was trying to get you to stop but you almost ran me over, you know that!
me - well what kind of idiot walks in front of a car because of an exhaust?!
him - you know have to yield to pedestrians, you know that right!?
me- well youre an idiot for purposely walking so close to my car like that
him - (mumbling) well you have to yield to idiot-pedestrians
me- well i'll make sure i'll yield to idiot pedestrians like you next time...
him- great then, i have your tags so im going to report you to the police
me- go right ahead and do that (i didnt really care for his threat)
him - okay fine! (looking confused)
---I then immediately drove off irritated.

Basically would like to know who is at fault here?? even if my exhaust is illegal, can anything be done from a report? (if he actually does go thru with a phone call report) I dont care about reporting him as i dont want to waste the energy, time or if need be, any money, but im pissed he actually put a hairline crack in the rear windshield.

So im left with having to possibly hear him bitch again the next time i visit my mom or, I encounter him calling the police on me before i can leave the neighborhood. I really dont want to deal with this guy again but from the looks of it, i may have to put my stock exhaust back on, which i really do not want to, or feel like doing. Any advice appreciated.
--------------DONT BE AN ASS GO TO THE COPS HAVE HIM ARESTED FOR CRACKING YOUR REAR WINDOW! YOU DONT HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THAT **** ' HE BROKE THE LAW BY TAKING IT IN HIS OWN HANDS ---------ASK ANY COP ?????

I didn't ask you to break his limb OP. Just asked if it were a shotgun or a baseball bat on your rear windshield. Would you still walk away without calling the cops.

My reply to you was to report the incident to the police so you have grounds for getting a restraining order against him.

You talk about graduate school, I am done with grad school and doing my second masters. I've been in similar situations and have handled it calmly without touching the other person. Or even raising my voice. I just called the police and asked the guy to wait till they arrived. Later getting restraining order against the person. Now the person has to stay away from me and my fiancÚ 100 yards out. From your conversation the other guy was even wanting the police to come. It would have been easy.

It is one thing to avoid possible trouble and it is other thing to let someone walk all over you. Now imagine you have to go to your parents again and you see the same guy. How long are you going to avoid him?
Also if you had called the police, he would have got in trouble for walking on the road and got a ticket for jaywalking and destroying personal property on purpose. You would have got a fix it ticket for your exhaust if at all.
Front license plate, are you kidding me? I have had front plate tickets and I fixed it and got the ticket cancelled.
The same day when I had to call the cops on this guy, my car windows are tinted to 20%. That's illegal. I don't give a **** about a ticket if it was about the safety of myself and fiancÚ.

It's not about how big your balls are, it's about being rational and to take a right stand. Not necessary to punch him on his face. Deal with the situation with the right means.

Everyone who says he should have punched the guy, he did the right thing by not punching him but did the wrong thing by not calling the cops and just driving away.

And you're pissed about all this yet unwilling to do anything about it?

Either man up and call the police on this guy, or don't whine about it.
Truth.
