That's how his defense attorney(s) will spin it, anyway. I've been diagnosed with ADD and clinical depression but I manage not to try to murder anyone either - I'd never even consider it an excuse for violence. This "man" is a criminal, plain and simple. No regard for any other person but himself, and now I'm sure he's spending his time worrying about how to get out of "trouble" rather than feeling any ounce of regret for the suffering he caused the two riders - and for what? He couldn't drive as fast as he wanted? What a waste of space. People like this ought to be locked up for the rest of their lives, or at least until they're too old and feeble to hurt anyone else anymore.
