here's a video version of the story from TBS. they say that the bike guy was trying to pass 3 pedestrians when they got in to a argument. no detail on what the argument was about, though. NNN quotes one of the pedestrians as saying they'd been kicked. looks like everyone involved was over 50. so much for youth gangs.

Yeah, on closer inspection I believe you may well be correct.

Booze would have been the main reason, I suspect.

I bet he was trying the "ring loudly and charge through the group" technique employed by most mama chari riders here. The three chaps probably took offense to such manners, leading to the altercation.

He was on a bike, but not a cyclist. This will be one of those mama chari goons.
