Glastonbury Police: 'Impeach Obama' Sticker Leads to Baseball Bat Attack

Glastonbury police say a Manchester attacked a car with a baseball bat after another motorist flipped him the bird because of his “Impeach Obama” bumper sticker.

A possible difference of political opinion prompted a road rage incident on Friday in Glastonbury.

According to Glastonbury police, Paul V. Guaschino, 61, of 1149 E. Middle Tpke., Manchester, attacked a fellow motorist’s car with a baseball bat after the other driver made a rude gesture in reaction to Guaschino's “Impeach Obama” bumper sticker.

According to the Glastonbury Police Department, the other motorist gave Guaschino the finger in protest of the bumper sticker.

Guaschino followed the other vehicle to a stoplight, got out of his car with a baseball bat and hit the trunk of the motorist’s vehicle, police said. The bat left a large dent in the trunk of the car, police said.

The driver then fled the scene, fearing for his safety, police said. Another motorist who witnessed the incident called police to report the attack.

Gauschino was arrested and charged at the scene with second-degree threatening, second-degree criminal mischief and breach of peace. He was released on a written promise to appear in Manchester Superior Court on Feb. 20.
