Florida Mouthful

NOVEMBER 22--When a female driver sought to apologize for her role in a road rage confrontation, a Florida Man responded by giving her a mouthful.

A mouthful of food that he spat from his mouth into hers, according to a police report.

Investigators say that David Wipperman and the female victim were involved in a “road rage incident” on October 29 in Pinellas County.

Following the confrontation--which is not further described in court filings--Wipperman, 61, exited his Chevrolet truck and approached the driver’s side of the victim’s Kia sedan.

The woman, cops say, rolled down her window and “apologized to the defendant.” Wipperman allegedly responded by spitting food he had been chewing at the woman. “The food struck the victim in the face and entered” her mouth, according to an arrest affidavit.

Wipperman then allegedly open the victim’s car door and began screaming at her while pointing a finger in her face. His menacing ended when “a passerby interrupted the incident.”

Seen above, Wipperman was arrested yesterday and charged with a fair of felonies. He is being held in the county jail in lieu of $12,500 bond.      

Wipperman, a Largo resident, is a convicted felon whose rap sheet includes collars for disorderly conduct, violating probation, battery, grand theft, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and felony battery. The arrest affidavit lists Walmart as Wipperman’s employer. (1 page)
