Two men reportedly got into an altercation recently over an alleged speeding incident on Broadmoor Dr. The dispute included alleged threats.

According to a Braselton police report, a man said he and another male driver exchanged “verbal slurs” during an altercation over the alleged speed at which he was driving through a neighborhood.

He said incident included the other driver threatening to “beat his a—“.

The other driver, however, said he was threatened when the complainant told him, “I know where you live.” In response, he said he followed the complainant to his residence and made a motion indicating “that he was watching him.”

The complainant said the dispute began when the other driver pulled out in front of him and threw up his hands outside the vehicle’s window. He said he then followed the other driver to the neighborhood pool parking lot where the verbal altercation reportedly occurred.

The complainant contended that he was driving behind a large truck and “knows he wasn’t speeding.” But the other driver said the complainant was driving 50 mph and almost hit him while he was pulling out of his driveway.

Neither man admitted to threatening the other.
