Remember the cretins who shut down a busy freeway in Los Angeles several years back, forcing stalled drivers to listen to their musical performance? Or the marriage proposal that took place in the middle of the 10 freeway in West Covina in a cloud of pink smoke, stopping traffic for 10 minutes?
The latest chapter in the book of narcissistic assholes who enjoy causing massive gridlock on freeway systems used by ambulances, fire trucks, and people who get their pay docked if they punch in late is Vidal Valladares. He was arrested on Tuesday after he shut down Interstate 45 in Houston to propose to his girlfriend amidst the romantic clamor of honks and angry screams. He faces six months in jail and a fine of up to $2,000. He was charged with obstructing a roadway, a Class B misdemeanor.
