That idiot actually got lucky. He could have been stabbed or even shot, pulling that crap!
Bike owner was pretty lucky, too. Whether or not you agree with his actions, if he was still there when the po-po arrived they would have had a difficult time telling the injured party that it wasn't worth pressing charges for assault. I don't think the kid could have pled self defense.
