  1. Lock him up, try him as adult and throw away the key. Wreckless driving on surface streets a good recipe for disaster. Glad he didnt hurt anybody.

    • Yup, lock that dipschit up and no license until 30. But I’m sure it’ll be a flick on the wrist no doubt.

      A lot of homes on that stretch with no protection if a vehicle crashes into one. Surprised it hasn’t happened and hope it never does.

      Few years ago some pony tail idiot cut me off hauling ass down east cypress singing to his blaring rap crap. I found he crashed into a ditch just before bethel island road when I caught up. He had just got out of his car uninjured and clearly shaken. But I managed to pull over, get out and curse at him something awful. The look on his face was priceless for sure. Idiots like that truly don’t deserve a life.

      And today saw another moron fish tail his black bmw around the turn onto east cypress, then proceeded to punch it with everything he had. Smh

      That’s a problem area that needs serious traffic enforcement and never gets it.
