If you hadn't brandished a firearm, you could have pressed charges for reckless endangerment and maybe actually gotten that moron off of the road. It was dumb luck he didn't just swerve into you with his truck. In most states flashing a gun gives that driver the legal right to respond with lethal force. As much time as you might spend at the range, most drivers are faster with a steering wheel than you are with a trigger. And a pickup truck doesn't really need to be aimed. But I guess if feeling like a big man is worth getting killed for...
It would have been his word against the other guys,as in, what gun, and I didn't even see a guy on a bike.
Next time he should locate the vehicle,take an old beater bike and slam it under the wheel of the truck,skin his elbows and knees a little and lay down in front of the vehicle and scream that some guy ran him down and didn't even stop to see if he was alive.
Witnesses will recount his damaged body laying there to the jury.
