Tribune Does Story On Gun Incident In Pasco County

A few weeks after I wrote about the incident regarding a Pasco County motorist threatening bicyclists with a gun outside San Antonio, the Tampa Tribune ran this story today.

There are so many things wrong with this situation, besides the obvious. The police say they can't charge him with assault... but legally it's just plain obvious that it is:

"An 'assault' is an intentional, unlawful threat by word or act to do violence to the person of another, coupled with an apparent ability to do so, and doing some act which creates a well-founded fear in such other person that such violence is imminent."

I'm not a fan of weapons or violence at all, but I'd say that legally, if one of the cyclists had been carrying a gun and shot the guy, it would've been an open-and-shut self-defense case.
