The helmet camera used in this video is NOT a GoPro, but a Drift HD Ghost action camera. Driver of the car apparently broke his ankle when he went to the ground, which is why I’m told he did not go to jail. He has multiple charges against him including endangerment, threatening, and assault. Myself and the police officers I spoke with clearly believe he was under the influence of something. Court date pending.
Police department officials have told me that they are still waiting for blood test results to come back to determine what if anything was in the guys system, I will keep everyone posted. On the day of the incident a police officer smelt alcohol on the man’s breath, when asked if he had been drinking he admitted to having 4-5 shots of whiskey prior. His full list of pending charged are as follows:
- Disorderly Conduct x2
- Endangerment x2
- Threatening x2
- Assault x2
- DUI x1
The investigation is complete and has been forwarded to the state prosecution, I’ve been told it will take 30-90 days before he goes to court and/or is sentenced. After several months justice has finally been served. The man who attacked my girlfriend and I back in July finally went to court. He signed a plea agreement to plead “no contest” to disorderly conduct and DUI.
His sentence is as follows:
- Serve 10 days in jail
- Pay a fine of $2800
- Be forced to take an alcohol counseling class
- Unsupervised probation for the next 3 years, during that time he is not allowed to consume or possess alcohol.
- Have an ignition interlock device installed on his car.
- If he violates his probation he will do 6 months in jail.
If you ask me, he got off easy…but at least something was done. I do not feel bad about exposing him as I hope this video will help warn new and old riders of how quickly a bit of road rage can get out of hand.
