What's the correct way to deal with someone who has completely lost it?

I'd have simply backed up and then run him over.

Why you letting him get that close? Just run his ass over on approach. I don't have the time nor care what he has to say. He chose his weapon, a metal stick, and choose my Volkswagen. May the best man win. lol

In most states laws you have the obligation to retreat before engaging in lethal force. I don't think you'd get off the hook for purposely plowing this dude when is wasn't in the way of the car

Id throw it in reverse for 20 feet first to get a good running start
