Cyclist's road rage brings trouble


El Guac-Oh
ROANOKE — Call it two-wheel road rage.

A Keller bicyclist was cited for simple assault Saturday after he threw a water bottle at a motorist who he believed had cut him off.

Several cyclists were riding about 9:30 a.m. in the 400 block of Ashley Lane when a Toyota driven by a 43-year-old Trophy Club woman veered in front of them, according to a police report.

One bicyclist pursued the motorist and got her to stop a few blocks away, the report states.

The bicyclist threw the bottle, which went through a window and struck the woman.

She was not seriously injured, but she did call 911. A resident working in his yard witnessed the assault. When police arrived, the cyclist was in troubled water.
