    Some trails hazardous...

    Man accused of making bike trail holes

    FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) -- Police said they arrested a man who acknowledged digging holes on a park bike trail as payback for nearly being run down by a cyclist.

    Warren John Wilson, 52, faces a single felony count of vandalism, police Sgt. Linda King said Friday.

    King said nearly 50 holes measuring about 1 foot by 2 feet have been found since June along a trail at Laguna Lake Park, and in some cases attempts had been made to hide them from cyclists. She said some riders went over their handlebars after hitting the holes, but none reported major injuries.

    Detectives watching the trails questioned Wilson, who said he had nearly been run over by a mountain bike rider and began digging the holes in retaliation, King said.

    Police said Wilson had been released from custody. A phone listing for him could not be found.

    Funny, I always wanted to take a post hole digger and dig a bunch of 8 inch wide by 18 inch deep holes on the local MTB trails. Darn horses turn every trail into a ten foot wide feces filled mud hole. Then when someone cuts a small side trail around the mess the equestrains follow it and ruin it as well. I imagine a hoof would fit just about perfect down an 8 inch hole, but a bike would roll right over it.
