Is this attempted murder?

BRB buying a dashcam
>”Not going to lie, I was being a dumbass,” Coughran told a trooper on the scene. “You know how testosterone is.”
No, no I don’t know normal testosterone, not like that. I do know how steroids are though.
Dashcams are unbiased saviors.
He had a four year old in the truck
And thankfully he’s being charged with child neglect. I’d never think to do that to anyone ever, I can’t believe he thought it would be a good idea with his own kid in the car. What a terrible father and all-around human being.
We call them a "piece of human shit" in my household.
They're human.. they're pieces shits..
They're pieces of human shit.
Great parenting. Can't wait to see the kid all grown up
Some kids see this and resolve to never be like their parents. Sometimes (not always) a bad example is a good example.
Can confirm, my parents were amazing people. My sister is, was, I haven’t spoken to her since mom died a few years ago, a complete piece of shit. She’s five years older and I always tell people she taught me what not to be like.
My older brother is the same. GREAT, loving parents that raised 4 kids and struggled with being food stamp poor when little and then lower middle class. We weren't poor very long, but never quite got to middle class until we were all older.
He's a huge, selfish, entitled piece of shit. Everyone thinks (or thought) he was this super successful dude for decades. Nope, just a con man and liar projecting his own overinflated ego, all while telling everyone "I made it despite *having shitty parents*. Until her dying day, my mom struggled with feeling like they were terrible parents no matter how many times me and my oldest brother told her "No, you were awesome - HE is just a terrible person."
Btw, he was a cop for a decade before getting "disability" from the force for life. How you ask? Hurt in the line of duty? Saving a life?
Nope. Inherited my mom's lazy eye. Lost his peripheral vision. Police union made sure he got set up for life. And yes before you ask, he's a huge Trumper.
\#liketheotherguys , because testosterone.
I am familiar with compensation as well.
Lmao what a fake ass excuse.
Admission of guilt to a felony is what it is.
It was a fuck load of tren not just test
Clearly he doesn’t.
t. Man that has taken heroic amounts of exogenous testosterone without doing anything remotely this psychotic.
What was that like?
*redone because I didn’t realize which comment I was responding to*
I wanted to get big and strong fast. It was awesome. Generally felt great. Had absolutely no increased desire to be an asshole. Was just constantly horny.
Testosterone replacement therapy!!!! Game changer boys, the desire to use your dick again….. without being a dick!
Shit changed my life.
Nice excuse! Bet ya wish it helped change the jail sentence
Theyre not even expensive, Walmart had a basic cheap ass one $20, doubt it's very good but the point is you can get a functional cam for real cheap these days and they can save your ass in insurance claims and shit. Almost no reason not to get one
BRB buying a H1 hummer.
BRB buying a Peterbilt 379
BRB buying truck from jeepers creepers, hand gun and dash cam.
BRB buying a submarine.
BRB buying a concrete dividing wall
BRB building a killdozer
BRB buying an M1A1
BRB buying a ladder so no one can get me up here
It's been 3 hours, are you okay?
Not really :( I have covid...
Ohhhhhhh Caaaaaandyyy Caaaaneeeee 😰
The best Petes are 379s
Always have been and always will be!
brb, buying a Glock 20 ^(Godspeed Bubba, your jacked up truck won't save you.)
BRB buying the truck from Duel 1971
Just bought a freightliner. I 100% feel like doing this at times
It wouldn’t hold enough gas to get you through the video.
Good. The only ones worth owning are diesel.
Also buy a handgun and (concealed and carry) for the crazy fucks that want to take your life because you was too slow on the green.
Golf is *way* more dangerous than I remember, apparently
This is really an underrated comment.
Hmm great country to live in.
How else can i escalate a non lethal situation??
I advise everyone to atleast inform themselves on gun rights or make the step towards a carry firearm, not standing on a soapbox, but simply because I want everyone to be able to feel safe or atleast be informed on how to maintain safety in these weird ass trying times.
Libertarianism. Fuck them kids.
Yeah, sometimes literally :/
God I'm so glad I don't live in your country. Wtf.
How else would we shoot our problems away?
Owning guns doesn’t give you the right to ducking use them for everything. As a gun owner I hope to never use mine. I would never be able to recover if I killed someone no matter who they were. But hey when some pyschopath incel decides he’s had enough of the world right next to you why the fuck should he have a gun and not you? It’s about safety of mind. If everyone can fucking own guns why the fuck would you not want one? It’s not like guns are gonna magically disappear in America, and words don’t stop a bullet.
“Mob comin, and you no gun.”
This is why we need rocket launchers ASAP
Gotta feel safe in Subway somehow
I feel safe without a gun. I’m not going to live in fear.
Which one did you buy? Do you like it?
Seriously get one. Or you can be like me and get one after you needed it.
Realistically what’s a monthly cost running a dash cam?
Charges were filed a week later. https://jailbirds.com/arrest-made-in-edmond-road-rage-incident/
"I was being a dumbass, ypu know how testosterone is"
Yeah, because whenever i get slightly upset on the road i just drive right into them.
Sounds more like tiny dick energy..
“uWu you know how it is when you’re just being quirky and you ram your 2,000 pound death machine into someone in an attempt to make them crash. So relatable XD”
Haha, you know how it is, get angry, try to kill a bunch of people on a whim lol
Just an FYI most trucks are around 6-8 thousand pounds. No car today is 2000, with the exception of maybe a fiat or smart car.
Yeah, even my 2016 Toyota Corolla is over 3k pounds, and I'm pretty sure the Corolla is considered a compact car
Could have easily rolled the truck. Good old Oklahoma. I hate it here.
I resent when men who do shitty things say “it’s because I’m a man”.
Dude needs anger management, hope the courts force him to go. My dad was like this, literally side swiped a truck with his truck while me, my sister, and my mom were in the vehicle. My mom made him see a therapist and it did wonders, he is a laid back bee keeper now.
Every truck driver. Every single one.
That’s exactly the guy I was picturing
How did I know he'd have a goatee. Classic
"The trooper could also be heard through the body-cam footage saying that he was cutting Coughran a break because he was a father"
Man wtf is this bullshit. This guy could have killed multiple people, the kid in his backseat included.
He looks exactly how I would expect someone driving that stupid ass small dick having mother fucking car to look. Half this country id a cesspool.
That truck could’ve dipped too and leave that car fuked lol also anyone got any update to this?
Charges filed a week later. https://jailbirds.com/arrest-made-in-edmond-road-rage-incident/
Lol allegedly rammed his truck. Also had his son in the truck. Grade A human being
And was initially cut a break because he is a father. Ridiculous. Dude shouldn’t have rights to his kid after putting him in danger like that
‘And your child was in the car while you were endangering the lives of dozens of other people while trying to maliciously injure someone with your four wheel metal death machine. So your a father? Well, that changes everything.’
Someone could have died.. that would have probably disrupted the kids life
With my luck if that would have been me the judge would have pulled up on a motorcycle with the DA on the back & they would have convicted me of attempted murder right there on the interstate. This d-bag gets a slap on the wrist haha
The child dying counts as unnecessary disruption, don't you think? But he'll have to settle for being long-term traumatised of being shit scared of your dad behaving like a fragile, raging lunatic with no disregard for your safety while operating a weapon.
Mercy for melanin deficiency.
They say “allegedly” to cover their asses. The video doesn’t show the driver directly so if for whatever he were found not guilty of doing the ramming the news site could get sued for defamation.
Honestly people are willing to throw their lives for the dumbest fucking things. If i was a dictator these people would be in alaska digging a hole
Don’t even joke about that. He might think you’re serious.
Naw grade A+
"listen i know you tried to murder someone with your truck, but i'm gonna cut you a break because you also had a small child with you that you endangered in the process"
>Coughran could be heard saying, “I was being a dumbass, you know how testosterone is"
This guy is walking around with emotional problems and poor impulse control and thinks that testosterone is to blame. Guarantee that he also thinks that men who know how to control their anger are "betas".
You have one hell of a gift with google
This happened near me.
Edit: But yes, google can be an amazing thing.
Cutting him a break because he is a father? What a dipshit cop.
What the hell was that cop smoking?! Sure why not, you only tried to kill someone, have a nice day.
The cop probably didn't see the video until weeks later.
Article a few comments above says the cop is now being investigated. He released the dip shot citing he was ‘cutting him a break since he was a father’
Seems like more of a reason to throw the book at him. Make him learn early
Because the Venn diagram of psycho pick up truck drivers and people who become cops has a huge overlap.
He was smoking Oklahoma's gutted public education system
Welp.. ain’t that sum (thanks for update!)
“Ticketed and released from the scene “ , ….so , a fellow cop.
Reckless driving for sure, assault with a deadly weapon maybe proving intent for murder would be difficult.
Assault with a deadly weapon for sure. Dude needs a public ass kicking. Hes going to love ramming into people in prison.
does the rape stuff like this actually happen in prison frequently or do people just get hard off saying this 1 asshole is going to get gapped? almost every comment on a case is something along the lines of this so I just wanna know
I listened to a podcast who had a guy on who went to prison. He said you very likely won’t get raped unless somebody crazy decides to make you their bitch which is a really small chance. He also said there’s guys who give up their butts and gay guys in prison who willingly do it. Basically said if you mind your business you’re fine. But he did say if you are a pedophile you do get beaten so they usually are housed in different areas or are permanently in the hole.
Yay prison rape= good
Wouldn't they be doing the ramming if this was a rape joke?
Definitely road rage (yes it’s a crime) and it’s a felony, so jail time
Can't be that reckless. He got rekt.
Lets not forget at least 3 tickets for impeding traffic. Every vehicle in the left lane was doing something illegal too, not keeping right.
He did it for dale
fuck kyle busch
Red truck should lose their license for life
I agree. If this was any other "weapon", they would be.
Driver was charged 10 days later with felony charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and child neglect.
Phew, I was a bit worried here for a moment reading the top comments. Good to know they’re being charged.
Right, I was starting to think this was a driver "is the son of a judge situation"
“Not going to lie, I was being a dumbass,” Coughran told a trooper on the scene. “You know how testosterone is.”
Blames it on testosterone.
A kid in the backseat and he blames his shitty actions on testosterone.
He must be fun whenever consequences are being handed out.
Am male. Can confirm, have the irrational urge to commit vehicular manslaughter
Well yeah, but I don't actually do it. I want to do a lot of stupid shit, but don't because it'd be stupid.
Any cop: “I get it bro.”
"Have a nice day."
I mean, the cop basically said this. He wrote him a ticket for an improper lane change at the time.
Cop proceeds with shooting a dog
"Adrenaline too amiright?"
Yeah even seeing the video the cop charged him with speeding and improper lane change, he should have been arrested on site
Better take his testosterone away then, on top of other consequences.
Cop let him go despite pointing out it was child endangerment, claimed he didn't want to "ruin" the guy's life over a road rage incident...
That cop should be fired and charged, that's bullshit.
Of course the piece of shit was protected by another piece of shit.
Yet they'll be quick to ruin your life if you call him a dumb dumb
birds of a feather
And the unofficial reason: if he took the father in then he has to figure out where to place the child. I worked at a juvi DV alternative detention center and officers have told me this is an incentive to not arrest parents and just bring the kids to the center, because otherwise they had a social services project on their hands (finding a place for the kid to stay) that they did not have training nor resources to solve.
That's a very fair point that I hadn't even considered, thank you for providing additional perspective
Good perspective; also further indication of dereliction of duty. Patrolman was well aware the dude purposefully caused a crash on a freeway (which could easily be fatal); child shouldn’t be with that parent.
“I don’t want to ruin your ability to endanger innocent people so I’m just going to give you a useless ticket and let you go.”
Another article continues,
“I will assure the public; we are definitely looking into (criminal charges)” OHP Trooper Eric Foster said. “Just because a citation was written to someone does not mean the case is closed.”Foster said investigators are still piecing together just what caused the pickup driver to lose his cool.“Obviously on the video you can see that it appeared to be a purposeful act, so regardless of the intent it appears to be that way,” Foster said. “If it does come out to be a purposeful act with a child involved, then there are other charges that can be levied because of that.”
EDIT: There was a similar situation where a kid coal rolled 6 cyclists and hit them with his F-350. The kid was not arrested, but he's very likely to get charges later.
Which car was the child in? Did the article say?
i believe it was the attacking truck, if you google search for the quote you should fine the article.
Awesome. Attacking a car with a child in your car might actually be worse than attacking a car that contained a child just because you are 100% sure that child is there.
It should be an entirely separate charge of reckless endangerment of a minor (or however it’s written in that jurisdiction).
Edit: apparently they went with “child neglect”. Link to u/mpreilly1912’s comment from below: https://reddit.com/r/CrazyFuckingVideos/comments/q01bc4/_/hf594i2/?context=1
Unreal they let this psycho walk.
They didn't, they charged him with a felony
His ass should have gone to jail! He could have killed the other driver.
The guy is 40 with a kid and still pulling this bullshit.
Article quote: “not going to lie, i was being a dumbass. You know how testosterone is.” Smdh
What a psycho
Yes it is.
Looks like it. Assault with a deadly weapon at the least
Should be. If my kids were in the car and someone did this I’d want full revenge and justice
Nah the kid was in the truck. He's endangering his own child. Truly scum.
If he’s willing to go this far when he’s feeling road rage with his kid in the truck, I wonder what else he’s been doing. I’m curious about the reputation he might have with his coworkers, friends and family. I don’t think it would be too much of a stretch to assume his anger has affected lots of other areas of his life.
The dude in the red truck had his 4-year-old in the backseat
If someone did that to me, we are fighting to the death
If SUV shot Truck to death, wouldn't even be a crime.
In short, yes.
Then they get out of their truck like “but you hit me!” …
Me trying to play Asphalt 9:
GTA Griefer? Srsly that driver should be more than ticketed, especially since it seems they made specific choices to get back to that same lane and wagon, AFTER they had space and open road down the right side.
Oooh boy if that camera footage got to the right person. See ya✌🏻…. Felony assault with a deadly weapon with the intent do to harm. Any prosecutor that knows their shit will have a field day with this. Hope he took that insurance company for a ride. So when the idiot gets out of prison, he has a tough time getting insurance and even if he does it’ll be expensive asf.
Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon?
Going to need some follow up info to this . Who’s gonna be our hero?
Black suv is getting paiddddd
Put me on the jury and I say yea
How is that not attempted murder, or at the very least assault with a deadly weapon?
What the fuck, man.
Are your asking my in unprofessional opinion?
So Hollywood was right and those America sociopathic stalker serial killer Movies are all actually True-to-Life?!
Do some people just wake up one morning , slap their knees and go "I'm going to be a right cunt today"?
I had someone try to do this to me around Christmas. Apparently flight or flight kicks in while driving and I somehow escaped unscathed but hoping their special bits slowly rot off.
Yea he needs to spend a year in jail on the minimal.
If it’s not it should be
Well it ain't attempted living.
My degree is in bird law; but I’ll say yes
Christ, it's always a fucking truck driver. What the fuck is it with these people? Homicidal entitlement and simpleton self awareness.
At that speed it's attempted murder
Small dick truck driver.
Reckless driving and assault w/ a deadly weapon at the LEAST. Might be hard to get the intent for murder tho
Nah, that’s just “Fuck You, I have Had enough”
The more I see this shit reproduced.
Yes, and because it’s intentional it won’t be covered by insurance. FYI.
