Cyclist attacked in Plant City
« on: June 29, 2008, 07:43:42 AM »
I'm sending this out as it pertains to everybody who rides a bicycle.

In a message dated 6/29/08 2:03:00 AM, writes:

Fellow Cyclists,
I am sending this out to a fairly large distribution due to the nature of this message.
On June 14th, Richard French was cycling on Wiggins Road when he was struck by a bat from an individual who was in a vehicle.  The individual, a white male, leaned out the passenger side of a red van and struck Mr French in the back as the vehicle passed by the cyclist.  Mr. French was brought to the emergency room and fortunately was not seriously injured.  The family is looking for any information that may lead to the apprehension of the individuals (someone had to have been driving the vehicle) and is offering a reward of some kind.  Please contact Mr. French at 863-644-7317 if you have any information that might help us bring these individuals to justice.
Regards, Ruben.
TBF, President

First that poor guy who got hit by some * in a truck out at Santos and now this.  What the hell is wrong with people? 

Good to see he escaped serious harm.  Hope they can track these idiots down.
