On Friday, January 15, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office responded to Interstate 85 in Commerce to a battery report.

A woman reported a car occupied by two people was driving aggressively and came too close behind her vehicle as they traveled along I-85 and the vehicle passed her several times on the shoulder of the road.

The complainant said the aggressive driving continued for approximately 10 miles before the other vehicle got in front of her car and stopped in the middle of the roadway, blocking her lane of travel.

She said the male exited the vehicle and hit her 16-year-old son, who was sitting in the passenger seat of her vehicle, in the face.

The complainant said she exited her vehicle and attempted to take a picture of the Maryland drive-out tag on the other vehicle, but the man slapped her phone out of her hands. She said the man then pushed her against her car before he got back in his car and left the scene.
