No one else bothered their shirts and just went about their business. I know they don't want to get hurt but I'd rather get hurt for standing up for whats right, than walking away while someone else does.
The quickest way to help I thought was to toot my horn to get his attention, so she could run away. It got his attention n he started to scream at me from across the street, the woman got away.
I turned onto other street but was stopped by traffic lights, so the guy starts to cross the road and come up to me, I noticed the police across the road.
I got their attention by rolling down the window and indicated them to help, while the guy starts screaming at me.
I asked him if he was stupid coz the police were right there, he said he didn't care. I said you will in a min, the police detained him and i told them what happened, as the woman he attacked came back. Then I just left them to it.
I know she will probably back him up, coz she is probably afraid of what he will do when he gets out but I can't just stand by and watch someone get abused like that.

BEST LAWYER STORY OF THE YEAR, DECADE AND PROBABLY THE CENTURY
Charlotte North Carolina . A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against, among other things, fire.
Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars and without yet having made even his first premium payment on the policy, the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost 'in a series of small fires.'
The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.
The lawyer sued, and WON!
Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company, which it had warranted that ?the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them ?against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable fire' and was obligated to pay the claim.
Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his loss of the cigars lost in the 'fires'.
After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him Arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!!
With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.
