An angry motorist who pushed another driver then drove a car at him has been jailed.
Dundee Sheriff Court was told the incident unfolded after Omar Rafik, 29, reversed a car into the path of another vehicle driven by Bashir Hussain.
The incident took place on August 12 in Sandeman Street, Dundee, and was witnessed by residents of the street.
Alison Christie, 48, told the court she looked out of her window after hearing a loud toot of a horn outside her flat.
Miss Christie said: “A red vehicle had reversed down Sandeman Place into Sandeman Street, as a people carrier was driving along the street.
“The toot came from the people carrier. It stopped and the driver got out. The driver of the red car got out too. The people carrier driver was trying to take photos of the car’s registration plate.”
Rafik was instantly aggressive and began shouting and swearing at Mr Hussain, who then went to the front of Rafik’s vehicle and continued to take photographs.
Miss Christie said: “The driver of the red car came right up to him and was shouting in his face. He shouldered him and he stumbled back.
“The man from the people carrier was about four feet in front of the red car. The driver of the red car then jumped into his car.
“The car lurched forward then he jammed on the brakes about six inches away from the man.”
When asked if there was any chance this could have been accidental, Miss Christie replied “no” because she saw the car “jolt” when it both accelerated and braked.
Rafik then drove off and Mr Hussain called police.
Rafik, a prisoner at Perth, originally denied the charges but changed his plea mid-trial, entering a guilty plea to two charges.
He admitted assaulting Bashir Hussain by pushing him on the body at Sandeman Street on August 12.
He also admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing, acting aggressively and driving a vehicle towards Bashir Hussain on the same date and at the same location.
Rafik was on licence at the time of the offence and Sheriff Collins ordered he return to prison to serve the remaining 110 days of his sentence.
