    I know I shouldn't, but I feel really bad about this. I was obstructing traffic behind this guy, all the way from Gig Harbor to Mullenix and I have video of him driving like an a**hole!! I was flashing my lights at a car merging onto the freeway that he almost hit when he decided to stop on the freeway AGAIN, (his 2nd or 3rd time)!! This time, as he pulled over where he caused the wrong way head on collision, I passed him and allowed traffic to flow again. People were stupid though, passing him on the right shoulder. I called the police and they had already had several other calls and the first cop that I saw was when I got into Gorst. I stopped filming at 10:00 PM and this happened 8 minutes later. Somehow, with all of the calls that they were getting about this idiot, they surely could have sent someone out sooner!! Really pissed off and saddened!!!!!!!!!!!
