At approximately 9:00 p.m. I left my apartment at 1991 Newport Blvd, Costa Mesa, got in my car, and drove out of the driveway onto Newport Blvd in a southerly direction.
I got into the left turn lane and noted when I did so that a yellow VW had sped up behind me and also turned into the left lane.
I stopped at the light at the corner of 19th and Newport. When it turned green I turned left into a U-turn and proceeded in a northern direction up Newport Blvd. The VW followed.
At the corner of Newport and Del Mar Avenue I turned right, proceeded up Del Mar about 100 yards and turned into the parking lot of a U-Totem store where I parked beside the payphone booths. The VW continued up Del Mar past the store then stopped.
I made a payphone call then got back into my car and drove back down Del Mar to Newport Blvd and turned right, again proceeding north on Newport. I noticed that the VW was again following me.
I turned right off Newport Blvd onto Mesa Drive. The VW followed. I proceeded east on Mesa Drive to Tustin, the VW following about 200 yards behind.
I turned left off Mesa unto Tustin. The VW followed.
I proceeded north on Tustin across Bristol where Tustin becomes Campus Drive. The VW followed.
I continued on Campus and turned right on Quail. I may have lost the VW at the light at the Bristol and Campus corner as it did not make the turn right on Quail Street when I did, but continued north on Campus. I drove east on Quail to Birch Street. When I was within 50 yards of Birch Street I noticed that the VW had turned from Campus onto Quail and was again following me.
I made a U-turn near the Quail and Birch intersection and proceeded in a westerly direction back on Quail toward the approaching VW.
I pulled off the road about half way between Birch and Campus on Quail, parked my car and proceeded on foot to the est facility on Quail where I entered and picked up an event schedule I wanted.
While I was parking my car I noticed that the VW had pulled into a parking lot on the other side of the street and was parked facing out toward Quail Street.
After leaving the est facility I noticed that the VW was still parked in the same place. I walked over to the VW and looked inside. The driver was not in the car.
I walked back to my car, got inside and drove to in front of the VW. I wrote down the licence plate number (110 PIP). The VW was a “bug” type, with dull mag wheels.
I did not wait around for the VW driver to return to the car, but left the scene. I do not know if I was subsequently followed that night.
The following morning I called my attorney Julia Dragojevic at the firm of Contos & Bunch in Woodland Hills, related to her the above described incident and gave her the licence number and description of the VW. She said that she would request the Department of Motor Vehicles run a check on the car.
