A man reported that another man damaged his vehicle as he drove away and didn’t engage in a fight Tuesday afternoon, according to a police report.

The caller told police he was making a turn on a private road near Country Club Road and U.S. Highway 377 when he noticed another driver in a red vehicle driving toward him at a high speed. The report says the driver got out of his vehicle and became verbally aggressive toward the caller, telling him to get out of his car so they could fight.

The caller told officers he drove away and heard two loud bangs. According to the report, he stopped at a gas station when he felt he was safe and observed two dents in his vehicle on the driver’s side quarter panel and what he believed were two hand marks.

The estimated damage to the vehicle is $2,200. Police are still investigating.
