21-year-old Richard Fletcher had a road rage incident with Hany Farouk Gerges at the Dover Glen Drive and Murfreesboro Pike intersection on December 22nd, 2023. Gerges called 911 for assistance, advising them that another subject, later identified as Fletcher, had stopped short in the middle of the road, preventing him from pulling into a parking lot. Fletcher exited his car, approached Gerges, and exchanged profanities with him. Then, according to Gerges, Fletcher started to remove the plastic covering of the driver’s side door, so to prevent further damage, he exited his car and continued to exchange words with him. Fletcher threatened him, saying, “I will beat your ass!” and then he opened the door completely, stepped towards Gerges, and punched him in the stomach. Gerges used his pepper spray and fled the scene, during which Fletcher smashed Gerges’ back window with his arm. Fletcher was located at a nearby emergency room, where he was interviewed and confirmed he was at the location and had been pepper sprayed by Gerges. Fletcher was taken into custody for vandalism and assault on March 4th.
