The story, as reported on by our news partners at kvia.com doesn’t say how fast Villareal was accused of going or how the police would know he WAS speeding since they weren’t there at the time.

But, police say, after having words with the two people that told him to slow down, Villareal parked at his own home in the neighborhood and then later pointed a gun at the two neighbors. It’s unclear if the police saw any of this happen but Villareal was arrested on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The victims were a 23-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man who said all they did was tell the man to slow his car down while driving through the residential neighborhood.

Villareal was also charged with a parole violation.

Presumably, the two witnesses DIDN’T see the multiple face tattoos before they told the guy to slow down. My “path of least resistance” philosophy has a special face tattoo addendum: I never talk smack to anyone with face tattoos unless I know for a fact that the person is Post Malone.
