What happened to this woman in Florida this week was a dream come true for every driver whos been the victim of road rage. Karma is a beeotch, bro.
Tracy Lynn Sloan was driving along U.S. 41 in Tampa on Monday when a guy driving a Ford pickup truck started tailgating her.
She shook her head at the guy and when he didnt back off she pulled out her cell phone and started recording.
I couldn't move over because there were trucks in the right lane, and I sure as heck wasn't going to speed on a rainy day with the roads being as slick as they were, she wrote when she posted the video to YouTube. Watch it below.
After about three minutes of tailgating he passed her, flashed her the middle finger as he sped past then lost control of his truck and crashed into a light pole on the other side of the road.
You can hear Sloan shouting and laughing as she passes: That's what you get! All on video buddy!
The guy, apparently uninjured, fled the scene but Sloan turned her video over to police. They arrested Jeffrey Travis White, 33, at his home on Wednesday, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Hes been in trouble before. The newspaper found charges of battery, disorderly conduct and marijuana possession on his record.
Sloans video, which she titled Redneck Road Rage/Instant Karma, has nearly 3.5 million hits on YouTube.
I've recorded circumstances like this before, catching idiots doing stupid things, but never ever had this happen, she posted on the video.
This moron could have easily killed somebody with his moronic behavior, and my laughing at the end would have been replaced with tears.
Needless to say though, I've never seen Karma come back so fast.
Stargazing would like to point out that even though police didnt charge Sloan with anything maybe she shouldnt have been in the left lane if she couldnt pass? its not a good idea to be messing with your cell phone while driving on slick, rainy streets.
Someone had to say it.
