Channeling his inner chimp

Here's a story I read this morning in the New York Daily news. They have a pay wall, so I copied and pasted it here. Mods, should this breach forum rules please delete.

It's getting crazy out there. Who would do such a thing?

One Canadian cyclist made a really big stink after purportedly being knocked to the ground by a motorist.

The unidentified biker, believed to be in his mid-30s and sporting a brown beard, took umbrage at a close call in which he was almost struck by a car on Nov. 17 in Victoria, British Columbia.

In an act of apparent retaliation, the gentleman dropped trou on the side of the street, defecated and then flung his feces at the driver’s car.

“Whipped his pants down, laid it down and whipped it at the window like full chimpanzee mode,” eyewitness Josh Loftus remarked to Castanet. “I have never seen anything like it in my life.”

Victoria Police Constable Matt Rutherford said numerous witnesses tried to intervene on behalf of the female driver, who they feared might be assaulted.

The cop also noted that before the mystery flinger became hands-on, witnesses claim he opened her car door and was “verbally abusive.” Video shows the cyclist grabbing his bicycle and slamming it into the passenger-side headlights of her vehicle before fleeing.

Being able to poop on demand...hmm, I'm trying to think if there's a practical application for that particular skill.

Following a collision in Greater Victoria, B.C.

Articles say there was a collision.

LOL, I was just thinking of what should you do with your feces-covered hand after doing that. I wouldn't want to get **** all over my handlebars. Nor would I want to wipe my hand on my jersey. Even wearing gloves, they don't cover the entire fingers.
