Venice Bicyclist Arrested In Santa Monica After Jumping Up & Down On Top Of Car:

A 21-year-old Venice bicyclist was arrested on Wednesday, Nov. 6 after climbing on top of a car that had just hit him, spitting through the sunroof at the driver, and then jumping up and down on top of the car roof while yelling about the lack of use of the turn signals on the vehicle.

Officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were requested to rush to the intersection of Ocean Avenue and Pacific Avenue at 7:42 pm on this day, which was the scene of the motor vehicle accident involving a car and the bicycle.

When they arrived the officers spoke with the driver of the vehicle who said that the bicyclist had become enraged after the minor collision incident, and had pulled himself up onto the side of his vehicle and spat at the driver through the open sun-roof.

The bicyclist had then climbed onto the roof of the vehicle and started to jump up and down like a chimpanzee.

This caused much fear and panic in the mind of the driver.

The bicyclist continued the up and down physical motion while at the same time yelling that the driver should use the turn signals of the vehicle.

The bicyclist then jumped off the vehicle, remounted his bicycle and cycled away southbound on Ocean Avenue.

The officers, after obtaining a description of the bicyclist, went in search of him and eventually discovered the man in the 100 block of Pacific Avenue.

They arrested this man and charged him with vandalism, assault, and battery.

Bail was set at $20,000.
