Engine Light and Key Ignite Fight on Loganville Roadside

Fight arose after the engine light came on in a car being taken for a test ride.

Customers shopping at Three Peas in a Pod in Loganville on Saturday were taken by surprise when two cars pulled up and a fight ensued between the driver of one and a passenger in the other. According to the report, it all started with an engine light coming on in a car that was being taken for a test drive.

A woman from Power Springs test driving a vehicle from United Luxury Motors allegedly got angry when the engine light of the car came on. She and her juvenile son abruptly left the dealership, inadvertently taking the key of the test car with them. When the salesman from United Luxury Motors followed, indicating with his hand they still had the key, his gesture was mistaken and they "shot him a bird" back. He pulled up in front of them and slowed down, forcing them to stop in the parking lot of Three Peas in a Pod. The juvenile reportedly jumped out of the car and began attacking the salesman. An employee from Three Peas in a Pod tried to separate the two and the juvenile allegedly took him on too. He and his mother then left, but stopped at Race Trac and called 911 to report the incident. She reportedly said she was scared when the other vehicle had "blocked her in," and her son was protecting her. He was charged with simple battery and for being an unruly juvenile.

Wow, that is every car dealers worst kind of customer. What ever happened to civility?

Yes, I guess a warning to everyone on the roads. You just never know the temperament of the driver in the other car and what could set them off.

Come on, if you haven't had a car salesman that you wanted to beat to a pulp, you haven't shopped for cars very much at all (smiles)
