Angry Cyclist Bites Polish Bus Driver's Genitals

A work collegue just sent this e-mail to me.

ANGRY CYCLIST BITES POLISH BUS DRIVER'S GENITALS

WARSAW, Poland (Reuters) - A cyclist angered by an
overtaking city bus climbed aboard at the next stop and bit the
driver's genitals, Polish prosecutors alleged Monday.

PAP news agency said the Podgorze district prosecutor
in Krakow, south Poland, accused the man of causing bodily
harm. The prosecutor said the bus had tried to overtake the
cyclist Sept. 9 and got by after tooting twice.

"At the next stop the enraged cyclist left his bike,
got onto the crowded bus and began a quarrel which prevented it
from driving on. Then he beat the driver, broke his nose, bit
him in the stomach and genitals," PAP reported.

It said cyclist Slawomir A., 30, traced by police,
argued that the bus had wrongly overtaken him. When he got
aboard, the driver had enraged him by shutting the door and
trying to drive on. If successfully prosecuted the cyclist
could face up to three years in prison.

Under Polish legal custom those involved in legal cases
are identified only by their personal name and initial.

Hmmm... So he left his bike unattended to bite the driver's... well, you know. Now he's being prosecuted.

Seems like an awful lot of trouble to go to for that! Glad that nobody (apparently) came by to steal his bike. That would have really made his day!

fyi- this is a good example of the common law felony of mayhem-striking a blow which removes or damages an appendage.

It is not clear from the article how bad the bus driver was bitten in ... Well, you know what I mean.

Warsaw drivers will think twice now.

Do you think the bus driver used the phrase "bite me" to the angry cyclist. In which case he just did as he was asked to do.

Sometimes when you've bonked you're willing to eat anything.
