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.
Do you know what this means? It means I am a member of a gang, only we have badges, which means you are done.
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
