Angry gentleman attempts to run over photographer

A gentleman in a large vehicle took issue with a photography crew standing in his "driveway," and charged at them several times with his vehicle then jumped out to intimidate them.

Here's the photographer's side of the story:

We are on a PUBLIC road in the middle of Ramona, CA. Pretty much empty deserted road by a tiny airport. Five different residents of the area drove by asking if we needed help and weren't bothered by our presence. I didn't provoke the man because there was a really good chance he had a gun in his truck (the police afterward also confirmed this by saying lots of residents carry around there). Also, I said "sir" about 200 times because I was trying to be as polite as possible, even while he was trying to run me over.

Seconds before starting to record the man drove up and said we were shooting on a 'private road' which was false. I told him that we would be out in a few minutes and he yelled "FUCK YOU", that's when I started recording.

At the end of the video, he hits the phone out of my hands and it flies 20ft in the air and lands on the pavement with a broken screen thats all black. I was worried that the video didn't save but it did. I tell him he owes me a new screen and it'll be $200. He proceeds to pull his pants down and say "Suck those $200 out of my dick." This is when we drive off, with the police on the phone.

After it's all said and done the cops said that they'll go have a talk with him to see how drunk he was.
