At Least He’s Not Your Dad

A Colorado Springs man was arrested Monday after deliberately striking a bicyclist with his Dodge van, police said.

Timothy Hombs was driving his Dodge Caravan around 2:15 p.m. near Palmer Park Boulevard and Wooten Road when he spotted an “unknown party” riding on what he thought his son’s stolen bike,” according to the Colorado Springs Police Department crime blotter.

Hombs “intentionally” struck the bicyclist with his van to stop it, got out of his vehicle and approached the person he believed to be a bike thief.

The bike, however, wasn’t his son’s, the blotter said.

H/T: ohwilleke.

No word yet if Hombs is related to Doug Bruce.

    I hope they throw the book at him. That’s nothing short of attempted murder.

    …..he just destroyed it.

    This guy is a certified moron.  He should not have a driver’s license or voter registration. I know, I know…..

    Private carry permits.

    Not sure it would fit the a “make my day” scenario, and I am not a lawyer, but it would seem to be a reasonable self defense.

    I’m not advocating violence. I’m advocating defense from violence.
