His attorney previously said the alleged victim was the aggressor in the incident.
Officials have opted to dismiss the case against a Woodbury man accused of wielding a knife in a road rage incident. William Terence Bice, 27, was cleared of the felony charge in the “interests of justice,” according to a letter from the county attorney’s office provided to Patch by the defendant’s attorney. He was accused of threatening another man in a parking lot at the 7400 block of Currell Boulevard in Woodbury. His attorney, Murad M. Mohammad, of Mohammad, Schiks & Jaafar, has said the alleged victim was the aggressor in the incident, which happened in late January 2012.

Woodbury resident Jeanne Considine says people should remember that were all new drivers at one time.
Thursday, August 9, 2012
Impatient drivers need a reminder that there are a lot of new drivers in Woodbury this summer. Unfortunately, my daughter was harassed by one because she slowed down when turning off of Radio Drive onto Valley Creek Road. As she was taught in driver's ed, a yield sign means you don't have the right of way and you look for others who do. This impatient driver not only laid on his horn, but pulled up next to us and started swearing and yelling at her. When I tried to explain she was a new driver, he just swore more and made an obscene gesture as he sped away. I wish I had gotten his plate number to report him to the authorities. We were all new drivers at one time. Please try to be considerate on the roads. —Jeanne Considine, Woodbury Like…
