Doctor Found Guilty of Nearly Killing Bicyclists

New, 32 comments

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the Brentwood doctor accused of slamming on his car brakes to deliberately injure two bicyclists was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon, among other charges. "The three-week trial of Dr. Christopher Thompson drew close attention from cyclists, many of whom viewed the case as a test of the justice system’s commitment to protecting cyclists." Backstory: LAist.com has the graphic and bloody photos of one of the victims. The smoking gun in the case seemed to be that two other bicyclists alleged the doctor had slammed on his brakes in front of them just a few months before this incident. [LA Times]
