We rifled through it and found his identification with an address. Later we showed up at his house and convinced him that he had hit us. There was an old dent in the car that we passed off as fresh damage. We told him we were going to call the police unless he wanted to settle this without involving them. He gave us $700 and we called it even.

At one point, we were driving down the highway when a car ended up doing a 360-degree spin in front of us.
