What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
California (Southern).. (it's long but please help)
So, this is what basically happened.... I'm 20 years old and i work a restaurant, minutes before i was due to clock in i was out in the mall parking lot searching for an open space among a ton of other drivers... i pulled into an isle when suddenly the car in front of me stopped, leaving me in the way of traffic to the perpendicular lane, trying to move out of the way for the many cars blocked by my tail end, i went slightly to the right of the car in front of me - my front lights right about to their back doors. anyways.. they got very angry and we got in a yelling match while they continually told me to "back the **** up you stupid bitch and ****" i told them i can't- due to cars behind me- and to just move forward so i can go around them, and I'm NOT trying to steel their parking space -which i assumed is why they stopped
basically they said NO, continued to scream at me.. since i couldn't back up...She pulled forward blocking me between them and the parked cars... the man- oh this is an about 40yr old couple- he opens door (passenger) and hits it repeatedly on my fender, and i said "don't do something stupid!": and he charged at me put his face in my window and INTENTIONALLY "hacked" on and spit in my face.
Normally, (for my prides sake) I'm a very tempered woman and honestly have no fear of physically confrontation with anyone... however we were directly in front of my NEW place of employment and had no choice but to do nothing but be LIVID!
I took their license plate and called the police but was unable to speak to one in person tonight, also i do have an older couple as a witness... I'm extremely angry and embarrassed and really want to know what i can do about this and if i can press any kind of assault charges... i mean come on?! what if this guy's sick or something. And i HONESTLY was doing nothing wrong and i really have no idea why it was so important that i backed up anyways, i was just moving out of traffic.
Also, they ended up just stopping for NO reason... no cars were leaving so they were not waiting for a car to pull out like i assumed... they just felt like stopping.
