The entire distance between there and the Yadkin River Bridge, Ramirez allegedly would speed up, pass the truck, then slam on his brakes, forcing the driver to panic stop to avoid hitting him. The final straw, according to the logging truck driver, was when Ramirez darted into a space between the truck and another car that was so small Ramirez' car could barely fit. The truck driver followed Ramirez to Lowe's, where police were waiting.
The officers spoke to Ramirez' wife Lorena Samboni, who works at Lowe's, and she confirmed the other driver's account, saying Ramirez felt the logging truck endangered his three year old by not pulling over when he wanted to get on the road. He was later informed of the law, which is that he was required to yield to the truck, not the other way around. He was taken before a magistrate on multiple misdemeanor charges and released on a promise to appear.
