Bicyclists have complained for years about being yelled at and threatened by drivers in vehicles but this is an extreme case. The Spokesman-Review reports a driver over the weekend struck a bicyclist with his car, then shott him!

Gary J. Courtney, 56, was booked into Spokane County Jail on assault with a firearm and drive-by-shooting charges. Witnesses said Courtney hit the cyclist, a 30-year-old man, with his truck, then argued with him. Courtney pulled out a pistol and fired once in the man’s direction as he pedaled away, hitting him in the arm.

Judge Linda Tompkins set Courtney’s bail at $5,000. He has no other listed felony history in Washington.
