However, when he got three to four car lengths ahead of her, she turned her high beam lights back on. Due to this fact, a male in a dark colored Buick Encore stopped in the middle of the road, asked her what her problem was, told her that he should kick her teeth in, and then returned to his vehicle and went southbound on I-75.
