Manhattan Beach Bicycle Accident Was No Accident At All; “Cyclist” Arrested For Trespassing


Oriental Boulevard and Amherst Street (Source: Google Maps)

A man’s claims that he was riding his bicycle on Oriental Boulevard yesterday when a white SUV struck him and then took off turned out to be phony, police sources told Sheepshead Bites. In actuality, the supposed victim was the perp – a man nabbed for allegedly trespassing in a neighbor’s yard.

Police described the 24-year-old perp as a “bad character” with a rap sheet that includes nine previous arrests.

According to authorities, a vigilant neighbor spotted the perp looking through backyards and peering into cars. She snapped a photo of him with her cell phone and called police. The suspect then took off on his bicycle, and the neighbor began following him. The suspect then took his bike and threw it down on Oriental Boulevard and Amherst Street, laid on the floor and claimed the neighbor hit him with her car.

EMS responded to the scene and found the suspect without a scratch on him, and police pieced together the story.

The 24-year-old is charged with trespassing and menacing.

  2.  Considering how much shit she tries to make drivers eat she’s had it coming for a long time.

  3. Come on, piling on is a 15 yard penalty, and lacks class. She ain’t the first person to make a jackass of herself here. I make it part of my daily routine.

  4. He’s lost in service.

    My question is what about te part of the story about the driver leaving the scene of the”accident”. Guess that was made up also. Even if the person did leave, it was okay because there was no accident.

  5. Go read the article about the woman who was killed on Avenue S.

    Cars are vehicles of destruction that need to be controlled.

  6.  i was correct as well. I hope lost shuts her trap from now on thinking that bikers have the right of way. Drivers own the road!

  7. I think someone on the board, who shall remain nameless, (though the name begins with lost and ends with inservice) owes some people an apology. You have some ‘splainin to do Looosee!

       Just joshin with ya man.  Just shows all of us not to jump to conclusions. None of us were even close as to what happened!

  8. Local Broker on

    Where are all the bikers comments on this story. He was obviously framed by the driver.

  9. It’s a relief to know that a driver who owns the road did not casue this accident.
