Cyclists tangle with Lexus driver

On cyclist-popular A1A last week, a motorist angered a group of cyclists. The man's Lexus got dented and one of the riders was charged with assault. Read more in the Sun-Sentinel.

Crazy story and there's probably enough to blame to go around, but the driver sounds pretty nutty. His last quote about pulling out the gun and taking "a couple of them out" is chilling.

Actually, I don't think that the driver's comments are chilling. He has every right to defend himself from a group of idiots that are giving cyclists a bad name. The guy was over 65, and these people come and assault him? I understand that he passed too close. They were in the wrong to damage his property and threaten him the way they did. I have been clipped myself, but I'm not going to do that to someone. We are supposed to share the road, not take it over.... Wxcept during critical mass that is!
