Arlington Heights police received a report about 12:30 AM Monday of a reckless driver near Arlington Heights Road and White Oak Arlington Heights, IL. Police received a report from a witness that an unknown offending driver aimed his vehicle at an oncoming vehicle that was proceeding through the controlled intersection on a green light.
The victim’s vehicle was northbound on Arlington Heights Road without stopping in the right lane with a green light when the offending driver aimed his vehicle at the victim’s vehicle (as if to turn eastbound on White Oak Street). The offending vehicle stopped facing southbound in the northbound left lane at the intersection of Arlington Heights Road and White Oak Street — short of crashing into the victim’s vehicle.
The victim’s vehicle continued northbound on Arlington Heights Road. The offending driver then made a U-Turn and headed northbound in front of the witness, who was also traveling northbound. The offending driver sped up to tailgate the victim’s vehicle.
The witness then flashed his bright lights at the offending vehicle while following the offending vehicle from the left lane. The offending driver then made a fast right turn on Central Road and continued eastbound on Central Road.
Both witness and victim continued northbound on Arlington Heights Road from Central Road.
