Getting into a road rage fight can be a dangerous thing. You don't know what the person you're fighting with is capable of.
They can come at you with an aluminum bat.
Or a two-by-four.
Or a tire iron.
Or a gun.
Or a sandwich.
Orlando Police say two men were involved in a road rage argument when one of the men suddenly attacked the other man with a sandwich.
According to police, 41-year-old Reggie Diaz was driving on South Semoran Boulevard near Leevista Boulevard in a 2013 Nissan shuttle bus when someone driving what looked like a 2010 Dodge Caravan sideswiped him from the rear.
Both vehicles pulled over to the side.
Diaz then stepped out of his shuttle bus when he was suddenly attacked by a sandwich.
Diaz says the other man launched the sandwich from his car, splattering it on the shuttle bus windshield. The impact of the sandwich sent pieces of it flying around, and Diaz, not exactly sure what the object was at first -- because who the hell goes around throwing sandwiches at people? -- ducked for cover.
It appears the sandwich was just a warning shot. Because someone who was sitting in Sandwich Man's passenger side got out of the car and pulled out a gun.
Diaz sprinted back to his vehicle. He then says the other car screeched away and fled the scene.
Orlando police have been searching for the man's vehicle but so far, nothing.
According to Diaz, Sandwich Man is Hispanic, about 25 years old, and five feet tall. His buddy, Man With Gun, is described in the same way. Except that he was wearing a dark shirt and used a gun to threaten Diaz, as opposed to Sandwich Man, who was wearing a tan polo shirt and used lunch to threaten Diaz.
Authorities are asking anyone with information about the incident to call Orlando Police.
