People flip each other off all the time.

Can't say I havn't done it before, although I am generally pretty good at letting it go.

This is all irrelevant. You can throw your hands up, flip people off, give them the jizzing sign, whatever. BUT The moment either of you get out of the car, AKA the moment one person opens their door, and steps out, that person fucked up.

It's as black and white as that. Mistakes happen, people can be assholes, etc. BUT the moment you get out of your car, you are instantaneously the moron in that situation.

You'd have to be able to show/testify to an actual threat, or be to articulate how a threat was made. Section 264.1 of the Criminal Code.


If they hit your car and there's minor damage but the rest of the time they are using it to just scare you
Mischief for hitting/damaging your car. Section 430 of the Criminal Code.

How are they using it to scare you? See Section 264.1 again.

If they push you repeatedly but you just wait for the police to come
Assault. Section 265 of the Criminal Code.

In my situation, I decided not to turn left on a yellow after a 2nd car and this guy comes out to threaten me.
How did he threaten you? See Section 264.1.

The cops said nothing will happen and will not take this to court...
With the details you gave him, its quite possible that was the correct answer. Its also possible that more could be done, legally speaking.

I came out of the car when I saw him coming at me with the bat and he just started waving it until he saw me get on the phone.
You shouldn't have gotten out of the car. Waving around a bat, with no other context or detail, isn't going to amount to much of anything.

he honked at me multiple times and I gave him the finger.
Don't be a prick and people won't react.

Next time, don't get out of your car. Sit in your car with your phone recording how stupid he looks, then post it on Youtube.

If he hits your car, make the next left turn, pull over and follow behind him until he gets home. Now you have all the information you need on this dude and you can torment him whenever you're in a bad mood. Pop his tires, egg his house, and my favorite, dump paint on his car.

With that said, I think the cop just didn't want to deal with it so he told you to move along. Proper procedure would be to ask if you want to press charges, etc. To escalate the situation, just tell the cop that he hit you with the bat. Any form of contact with his weapon is considered assault so it doesn't have to be hard.

Just no. Want to escalate the situation? Fight back. When you want help from the police, don't break the law yourself

(c) reporting that an offence has been committed when it has not been committed; or

(d) reporting or in any other way making it known or causing it to be made known that he or some other person has died when he or that other person has not died.

If they hit you with the bat, thats battery (no pun intended).

Assault would be the hardest to prove unless if you had video evidence or witnesses.
You did good in 393 i bet
