If you didn't call the police, you allowed him to continue victimizing people, perhaps a young mother and small child who can't defend themselves as well as you. Always call and report assholes like this.

If he threw a rock at my car I would have pulled away far enough and called law enforcement. He should get arrested, as he damaged your property. Even a scratch could be $500 in repairs to your vehicle as a painter has to sand and blend.
To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.
Run the lite. Would have been OK for LE. Back in the '70s (very NOT PC) I drove a cab in NYC at nite. Dropped off someone on 140somthing street on the west side. Had a stack of cash in my cigar box at 3am and was driving south on Broadway, which had lites at every corner and a red one every other. Decided to run em all. Cop stopped me on 96 st and said WTF? I just said "i'm white and have a lot of cash and 2 cabbies got shot and robbed the other nite same area".
He let me go.
I should be tall and rich too; That ain't gonna happen either
I had a panhandler walk up to my window one day at an intersection . I waved him off and he punched my window and cursed me . I immediately dialed 911 and reported it . About 30 minutes later I passed back by on my return trip and the Police had him cuffed and leaning over the trunk of a unit . Karma's a bitch .

This right here Q. I would have safely run the light, call a LEO and wait up the road to see them handle the misfit. People are f'n nuts any more. Hope he didnt damage your vehicle.
Just a quick note- OC can have a reverse effect on the mentally ill. I personally have seen "crazies" freak out when pepper sprayed. I agree that, short of plowing through a parade of pregnant nuns, no cop would cite you blowing the light. I'd say 50-50 on you going to jail for spraying wasp spray in someones face for throwing a rock at your car. Probably closer to 80-20 here in CA. AND-Federal law prohibits the use of any pesticide in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Also Google it, it doesn't work. Just my .02
