Universal Hub, a local news aggregator here, is reporting that the Cambridge police arrested a man last night for "Armed Assault with Intent to Murder " for trying to run down a biker with his car.
Anyone know where or what happened?
On one hand, I am very happy that the Cambridge police are taking this extremely seriously, as anyone on the street knows that a car can be a lethal weapon.
On the other, it's terrifying that someone could be so crazy with (presumably) road rage that they would actually try to run someone over with their car. While I'm very careful with my middle finger, and am not going to try to get into arguments or fights, I've been known to use my vocal cords as a horn and yell at people who aren't respecting my space on the road. This is my worst nightmare, about riding vehicularly, that someone controlling a huge steel vehicle is riding behind you, and if they go crazy and act sociopathically, there's not a lot of protection. It is at least a relief that the police in Cambridge are treating it with gravity. Makes me even more curious what happened.
If anyone knows any details, or sees them reported, please share, and I'll post any updates I find.
