That is awful! I am glad you are OK, That is called assault, with the intent to harm. I can't believe that you were ticketed. I'm no lawyer, but that probably won't help your case. These MO rednecks are worse than the TX rednecks I dealt with in Dallas. Sounds like he has some serious issues.

. . . it's adding insult to injury to get ticketed when you were the one on the ground getting injured. seems like police have a bias against cyclists so if there is any doubt, the call goes against the cyclist. I have to take comfort in the few cases in which the raging motorist was actually convicted, such as the "road rage doctor" in California . . .
It's nearly impossible when one's life is threatened, but it will probably help us as cyclists in these situations to keep our own anger as much under control as possible. think clearly, and think what will "play well" with the police and in court. if a cop sees me calm and in control, maybe they will be more likely to see it my way, one can only hope . . . .
