Customer Question

I was on the parkway in NJ, a male driver was tailgating me, but it was high traffic (going 55, but congested)....He pulled up next to me, banged on the passenger side of the car 4-5 times and bent my antenna (all while going 55)...I called 911 and gave them the plate, they told me to pull over and not follow. I had to push really hard for them to file any sort of report (ended with an operations report) so now I feel like there is nothing I can/should do, but my antenna is bent and I have a scratch on the side of my car
JA: Do you need to appear in court?
Customer: The trooper basically said nothing will happen I was the victim but the police didnt see it so it is "my word against his"
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I dont think so
