Martinez Man Complains to Cops About Middle Finger


A Martinez man bothered a sheriff’s deputy this week to report being flicked off.

According to a Columbia County report, Emad Francis honked his horn at a customer taking too long Tuesday evening in the drive-thru lane of CVS Pharmacy on Old Petersburg Road.

“Mr. Francis said the car in front of him was taking a long time to get their medication due to multiple exchanges of insurance cards to the pharmacy clerk,” the sheriff’s report says. “Mr. Francis pressed his horn in an attempt to make the clerk aware of the traffic that was accumulating behind him. Mr. Francis noted that in response of the honking of his horn, the driver in the car ahead of him stuck his arm out of the window and gave him a hand gesture, then drove off.”

Francis then reported the matter to the sheriff’s office and asked the deputy to document the other driver’s reaction. The sheriff’s office could not locate the other driver.

  1. You blowing the horn was stupid cause it takes along time to get your medicine at ANY drug store, inside or at the drive thru window. Lots of people are on drugs too….be more patient!!!!!!

  2. I’ve also been behind a slow poke before at a drive thru but I always try to put myself in their position and calm down. BUT… if someone behind me “blew the horn” because they were impatient I think I may give them the ole finger too. But calling the police for it… lol oh boy this person sure gets their feelings hurt easy.
