Paul Guaschino was driving Friday when a fellow motorist spotted an “Impeach Obama” bumper sticker on the 62-year-old Connecticut resident’s vehicle.
According to cops, the other driver apparently did not appreciate the bumper sticker and “displayed his dislike by showing his middle finger.”
In response, Guaschino allegedly followed the other driver to a traffic light, where he exited his car–baseball bat in hand–and struck the trunk of the middle finger-waving driver. The second motorist “fled in fear of his safety,” police reported.
The road rage incident resulted in three criminal charges being filed against Guaschino (threatening, criminal mischief, and breach of peace).
Guaschino, who did not return a message left at his Manchester home, is scheduled for a February 20 Superior Court appearance. While state records show that Guaschino is registered to vote, he has not declared a party affiliation.
