It would be interesting to see some of the video prior to what the bicyclist/photojournalist decided to post at Driver assaults bicyclist, police ticket bicyclist - Greater Greater Washington; his own choice language directed at the driver before the driver exited the vehicle does not make me think of the bicyclist as a blameless/innocent lamb in this encounter. His trip to an ER seems like a gratuitous attempt to dramatize the incident.
