DC: Parking Transgressor Weaponizes Hubcap?
Washington, DC – While I was taking photos of a GMC Denali Yukon XL (Maryland plate: 891M204) parked at a Chevy Chase Circle (DC side) fire hydrant, a white female came out of a nearby building and picked up a jagged edge hubcap that was on the ground near the sidewalk. She complained about me photographing the illegally parked vehicle. I presume it was her SUV. She then made an underhanded back-and-forth motion with the hubcap in my direction. I feared for my physical safety and departed.
