[MLive] Police say 50-year-old Ferndale resident Anthony Zanetti became irate after he crashed his bicycle into the back of a man and fell.
Police say the black man struck by Zanetti attempted to help the bicyclist up, but Zanetti began shouting racial slurs and “went into a tirade” witnessed by a “large crowd.”
“He began yelling at the crowd, dropped his shorts, held his penis in his hand and screamed lewd comments,” according to Ferndale police. “During his tantrum, the suspect grabbed and pushed over a mailbox on the street corner. An unidentified man in the crowd punched the suspect, causing him to bleed from the side of his head.”
Ho hum. Another day, another bicyclist going on a racist tirade and attacking an innocent civilian. I mean is this even news anymore? We already know that all bicyclists are aggressive, racist monsters. They usually hide it a little better than this but the fact is this is pretty much just typical bicyclist behavior right here.
You who deserves a shitload of credit here? The poor guy who got run over. I mean holy shit, he might be the most even tempered man on earth. Dude gets run over by a bicyclist and doesn’t even get mad. Just tries to help the guy up, only to be met with an angry, racist, penis-waving tirade. I mean that escalated quickly, right? One minute you’re walking down the street, the next minute you’ve been run over by a moving vehicle and the asshole who did it is dropping n-bombs and trying to cockslap you. That’s a bad day right there.Follow @footstepsfaIco
