So, I posted a story some time ago about a SoCal cyclist that caught a truck throwing bottles of gatorade at him on video.
Cyclist videos encounter and gets some news coverage
The cyclist sent the video to the local Sheriff department and local news outlet. The story gained some news traction, but little to no legal action (DA elected to not pursue). There was some follow up push from advocacy groups to pursue legal action by the Sheriff department, but nothing happened.
The response from the Sheriff has been great as they're considering adding charges to the cyclist due to using "words in public likely to illicit a violent reaction".
I think that is insane and a bit of a push from the Sheriff hinting that they'd like him to drop it.
