Parking Lot Struggle

I will be the first to admit that parking lots are a challenge for me. Especially when it's dark and crowded. I don't have a backup camera so I usually just try to park in a spot that I can drive out of. I can certainly see where parking struggles can lead to frustration for other shoppers, but one woman took parking rage to the next level.


Assault In Progress Eastside Target

The caller states a female driving a black Camry tried to hit the caller with their vehicle. Caller says the female driver then got out and started hitting the caller, eventually dragging them across the lot with their car. EPD is with both involved parties. Both parties have visible marks and are telling different stories of what happened. EPD suspects this is a dispute over a parking spot.
