There’s nothing funny about screwing with a cyclist, as this South Carolina man now knows. As a daily bicycle commuter on the streets of Washington, DC and Maryland, The Juice is pleasantly surprised that this crime is being pursued. Per (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina):

Conway Police responded to the Kangaroo Express on Church Street on the afternoon of Thursday, May 1, in reference to a report of a man with a gun in a red Jeep. The officer saw four people exit the store and walk toward the Jeep, the report states.

A man identified in the report as Charles Gore told the officer that he had been pointing a toy gun at the driver of Jeep as a joke. The officer found a black and green plastic toy gun inside the vehicle.

Craigslist is a fantastic marketplace. You can literally buy and sell anything, or so these gents thought. As reported by The Colorado Springs Police Department:

On 02/01/14 at approximately 1700 hrs. Officer M. McCormick, was dispatched to the 1600 block of Loraine St. to investigate a reported burglary. Upon arrival he contacted the Victim who stated that between approximately 2200 hrs. on 1/31/14 and 1000 hrs. on 02/01/14 that an unknown person illegally entered his open attached garage and removed his Cannondale brand mountain bike valued at approximately $5,000.00. The Victim stated that his bicycle was very unique in that it was comprised of parts that he specifically purchased to put on the bicycle.

Not to digress,  or say anything negative about a fellow cyclist, but you left the garage door open? Oh well. The damage has been done. Or … has it?

Sorry, The Juice gets worked up when a cyclist is involved. He gets that a lot of people just don’t like cyclists, though he doesn’t fully understand why. But this? As reported by (Louisville, KY):

A Louisville man is accused of assault after police say he intentionally struck a bicyclist with his vehicle.

Now you can see why The Juice is very angry.

As a regular bicycle commuter, it pains The Juice to have to say this, but it’s not looking too good for this fellow cyclist. As reported by The Union Leader:

As a regular bicycle rider (and commuter), The Juice must confess that, if he lived in Florida, he would be a serial offender of this absolutely ridiculous law. And yes, it’s still on the books.

As a daily bicycle commuter, The Juice is usually sympathetic to cyclists done wrong. Usually … Per The Santa Cruz Sentinel:

[Two] boys, both 17-year-old Santa Cruz residents, went to a Mission Street music store and tried to sell [a] violin, which had been reported stolen during a car burglary on the Westside the night before, police said.

A store employee alerted police and an officer came to arrest the teens on suspicion of possessing stolen property. While that was going on, someone stole one of the boys’ bikes, which was outside the music shop, police said.

The boys were booked into Juvenile Hall. Their names were not released because they are minors. The stolen bike wasn’t found, but the violin was returned to its owner.

How about this defense: Would a thief leave a bike unlocked? I rest my case!

As a bicycle commuter who has been on the receiving end of many unkind words, The Juice can relate to this incident. From the Colorado Springs Police Department Crime Blotter:

Incident Date: April 5, 2010 Time: 4:34:00 PM

Summary: Stetson Hills Officers were dispatched to a weapons brandishing stemming from a road rage situation occurring at the intersection of Old Farm Drive @ Old Farm Circle West. Officers spoke with an adult male victim who reported that he was riding his bike on Austin Bluffs Park Way when he was confronted by a motorist in a red Jeep Cherokee. The victim alleged that the suspect in the Cherokee yelled at him for being in the street on his bike. A short time later, the two came to a stop at an intersection and they engaged in a mutual discussion about the situation. The victim said at some point, the driver of the vehicle displayed what appeared to be a small caliber hand gun. The victim then used his cellular telephone to take a picture of the vehicles license plate. A robbery charge was attached because the victim said the suspect tried to take the phone away from him, so he drove away from the area and called the police. Officers used the license plate information to obtain the suspects address. They responded to 5220 Farm Ridge Place and spoke with 46 year old Curtis Scrivner. Scrivner was contacted in the back yard of his residence. Scrivner was not compliant with the officer’s requests and a brief stand-off occurred. A short time later Mr. Scrivner ran into his house. A short time later, officers made contact with the suspect by phone and successfully negotiated his surrender. Mr. Scrivner was arrested and booked into the criminal justice center for felony menacing and aggravated robbery.
