Bicyclist on Bicyclist In Holier-Than-Thou Row

Posted by Matt Davis on Thu, Jul 10, 2008 at 8:46 AM

A drunk bicyclist, himself a bike advocate, has smashed the shit out of another bicyclist, who was driving a car at the time, for telling him not to blow a red light, "because it makes the cycling community look bad." Go cycling community! Yes! Er...no...

By now, the bicyclist, Steven McAtee, 31, was off his wheels. Yates said McAtee picked up his bike and wielded it like a weapon, smashing it against the Subaru's hood and windshield.

And then this...

It turns out, police say bicyclist McAtee was both drunk and in the wrong. And he's a city employee. He works for Portland's transportation department as a building plan examiner.

Maxine Bernstein has the scoop at the O.
