NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Nashville man claims he and his 10-year-old daughter were the victims of road rage Thursday afternoon all because of a political bumper sticker on his car.

Mark Duren told News 2 the incident happened around 4:30 p.m. while he was driving on Blair Boulevard, not far from Belmont University.

He said Harry Weisiger gave him the bird and rammed into his vehicle, after noticing an Obama-Biden sticker on his car bumper.

Duren had just picked up his daughter from school and had her in the car with him.

"He pointed at the back of my car, the bumper," Duren said, "flipped me off, one finger salute."

It didn't end there.

Duren told News 2 that Weisiger honked his horn at him for awhile, as Duren stopped at a stop sign.

Once he started driving again, down Blair Boulevard towards his home, he said, "I looked in the rear view mirror again, and this same SUV was speeding, flying up behind me, bumped me."

Duren said he applied his brake and the SUV smashed into the back of his car.

He then put his car in park to take care of the accident, but Weisiger started pushing the car using his SUV.

Duren said, "He pushed my car up towards the sidewalk, almost onto the sidewalk."

Police charged Weisiger with felony reckless endangerment for the incident.
