There’s good news and there’s bad news. The bad news is that we now live in a surveillance state. That’s the good news, too, I suppose — it led to the capture/death of the Boston bombers and it might lead to the arrest of an enraged BMW driver, who chased a cyclist, cornered him, pinned him against a dumpster, and then fled the scene.
The altercation started on April 3 on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, when the two had a confrontation. “During the incident, the bicyclist punched the driver in the face,” said Beverly Hills Police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino. “Subsequently, the driver of the vehicle threatened to kill the victim, and followed him into an alley in the 9000 block of Wilshire Boulevard…[and] the driver intentionally rammed the bicyclist with his vehicle, pinning (the victim) to a metal rolling trash bin.”
Police are looking for a mid-30s Caucasian or Middle Eastern man with dark hair, dark eyes, and slender frame. The Beamer is a white 2008 328i, white.
