This little ditty is another example of the he said, she said police encounter daily. In the most recent case, an officer was told that a 29-year-old Jeep driver was on Manchester Expressway about 4:50 p.m. Monday when she spotted a red Honda Civic in her rear view mirror. That Civic was approaching fast and appeared to be racing a silver Mitsubishi.

The woman almost got hit by the Honda, which led her to confront the guy, reports state.

Now, reports don't detail how the woman got face to face with the Honda driver. But they do say she told the guy, who was about 25, that she had kids in her Jeep and that he shouldn't be racing.

Police say they found the Honda driver and spoke with him about the incident. Turns out, the guy said he had no recollection of getting too close to the Jeep or almost hitting it.

What he did remember, though, was that people in the Jeep started throwing stuff at his car and followed him to Miller Road, reports state.

On every incident report, down at the bottom left, you'll see these questions: Do you recommend follow up? Supervisor concurs?

No followup recommended. Supervisor did, in fact, concur.
