Plaid Jacket Leads to Alleged Road Rage

Catherine Blair Pfander

A plaid jacket was the reason for a Tiburon man's road rage.

Some might call it a crime of fashion.

A Tiburon man was arrested Monday after allegedly attempting to hit a pedestrian with his car because he found the man's plaid jacket offensive, the Marin Independent Journal reports.

After receiving several calls about a reckless driver, Tiburon police stopped Eugene Thomas Anderson, 31, who made incriminating statements, according to police Sgt. Steve Hahn.

"He said he didn't like the jacket the guy was wearing," Hahn said. "He found it offensive."

Anderson was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and his bail was set at $50,000. Police do not believe Anderson was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
