    Slow driving led to a confrontation between a 22-year-old Citadel student and an unidentified man involving a baseball bat and a pistol on Hilton Head Island on Thursday afternoon, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office incident report.

    The student, who was lost, had been driving slowly on Beach City Road looking for a doctor's office when he pulled into a parking lot to look at a map, according to the report.

    A man driving a Porsche pulled in behind him and approached him carrying a baseball bat. The man was yelling about the student's driving.

    The student pulled a Glock 23 pistol from his glove box and got out of his car, the report stated.

    The man with the bat put his hands up, returned to the Porsche and drove away.

    The student called the sheriff's office from his parents' Hilton Head home. He was not charged in the incident.
    The Packet's biases are showing. Why would the LAC be charged?

    I spoke with a friend of the student involved in that incident. Apparently, the Porsche driver had been tailgating and following the student for a while, and refused to pass when he had the opportunity. The student kept his gun in the glovebox, and he did not have a permit.

    The student will be fine. There's no way he'll have any legal trouble from this. I just hope they catch the idiot in the Porsche.

    Nice choice of personal insurance. My G23 is one of my primary carry guns. Student was smart to do what he did.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
