A fender bender in a Pa. saloon parking lot allegedly turned violent after a man driving one of the cars confronted the woman driving the other vehicle.
As KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh reports, it happened parking lot of the Boot Scoot’n Saloon in Sewickley Township, Westmoreland County.
Following the minor accident in the parking lot, 25-year Anthony Weber III of Hermine, Pa., is accused of getting out of one of the two cars involved and physically attacking the woman driving the other vehicle, state police tell KDKA.
“While she was trying to get out of the vehicle, he grabs her by the hair and rips her out of the car,” Trooper Stephen Limani told KDKA.
Witnesses told investigators Weber slammed the young woman on the ground, threatening to kill her.
KDKA cites court records in reporting that Weber then took off and the victim called state police.
But it wasn’t over.
Weber apparently knew the victim and called her while state police were taking her statement.
As Weber allegedly threatened her, she hit the speaker button in order for the trooper to hear, KDKA reports, adding:
“That was one of the things that made it easy for our investigation, as opposed to he said-she said situation,” Limani said.
Weber also allegedly made threats and comments on social media to the victim for hours after the incident.
Weber now faces charges of assault, terroristic threats and other counts.
