In 2015 in October, my current boyfriend and I were walking down my road with a mutual friend of ours. We had nothing to do until my mom got home (We were having a bonfire, but she asked to be there before we lit it, so we waited.) We were walking a fairly short distance, and after we passed the last two houses past mine, we noticed a four wheeler in a field off to our left. At first all seemed normal, but after we got under a streetlight, the man started yelling and screaming. We kept walking, slightly freaked out, but not expecting any issues. The man came onto the road in his four wheeler and sped past us very quickly.
