Pedestrian Bitch-Slaps Frustrated Driver in Parking Lot

Public parking lots are kind of like adult sandboxes -- they're full of bullies who just don't respect you or your toys.

We bring you an example of this from the Outer Mission, where a driver and a pedestrian got into it -- and for seemingly no reason at all. Sometime around 1:23 p.m., a man was driving through a parking on the 2900 block of Alemany, looking for the next open spot. But he was delayed by a slow pedestrian who was leisurely making his way through the lot.

According to police reports, the driver believed that the man was walking slowly on purpose, to delay his finding a parking spot. So the restless driver honked at the man, which probably startled him.

The pedestrian walked right over to the driver's side window and smacked

the victim upside the head, according to police reports.

The victim got out of his car and chased the bitch-slapper through the lot, but was not able to catch up to him -- and like every bad bully, he got away.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
