ATTACK DESCRIPTION: On June 26, 2017, I was harassed, chased, beaten and my prized aerodynamic bicycle vandalized after passing Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey while bicycle riding on the Withlacoochee State Trail in Citrus Springs, Florida. Immediately after I safely passed Latshaw and Bailey, as proven by GoPro video, these bicycle riders harassed me at speeds ranging from 24 mph to 28 mph. I tried to avoid a confrontation first by speeding up and then by stopping at Country Club Blvd to allow these violent riders to ride away and waited peacefully on the opposite side of the intersection. Garmin GPS velocity data superimposed on a Google map of the area prove my speed never went below 23 mph until I stopped at Country Club Blvd when I tried to avoid a confrontation with Bailey and Latshaw. At this moment in time, Kenneth Bailey was slightly ahead riding down the Trail without Paul Latshaw and Paul Latshaw was hundreds of feet behind both of us. However, instead of riding away, Paul Latshaw dismounted his bike, walked his bike on the grass and leaned his bike on the signpost yelling You piece of American shit. The unknown attacker (Paul Latshaw) appeared he wanted to ambush me if I rode past on my bicycle. While on the opposite side of the street I laid my bicycle on the grass and walked across Country Club Blvd to identify the unknown attacker (Paul Latshaw), determine the cause of his anger, determine his intentions and if talking would resolve the issue. Instead of talking Latshaw said "You pussy" then yells, "We got a gun, man", "I see you out here all the time" and said he was going to shoot me by yelling "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass" and confirmed his intention to shoot me by saying, "You heard me". After escaping that life-threatening situation, Latshaw and Bailey cornered me at the corner of the Trail and West Citrus Springs Blvd and worked as a team to attack me from behind when trying to escape. After attempting to escape this attack, Latshaw and Bailey pulled my bicycle away from me knocking me to the ground and kicked me in the head denting my helmet using their cleated shoes as weapons and vandalized my bicycle. Latshaw and Bailey kicked me in the head, neck, buttocks, kidneys, knees, ankles, and strangled me with their cleated shoes leaving several painful scars while I was helpless on the ground screaming in pain without my prescription eyeglasses to defend myself. During the biased CCSO investigation critical GoPro video and physical evidence was totally ignored causing all charges (Assault and Battery and Malicious Mischief) against Bailey and Latshaw to be dismissed. The biased report stood until challenged and defeated in court several months later where it was conclusively proved Kenneth Bailey vandalized my property, Kenneth Bailey lied under oath, Paul Latshaw participated in the attack and Paul Latshaw was issued a Final Judgment of Injunction For Protection Against Repeat Violence to protect John Cipolla and his wife from repeat violence and stalking.

1 - HARASSMENT BEGAN SOON AFTER PASSING BAILEY AND LATSHAW
JOHN CIPOLLA INCREASED SPEED FROM 24 MPH TO OVER 28 MPH TO ESCAPE HARASSMENT


PICTURE-1: As I approached to safely pass Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw 0.60 mile north of North Citrus Springs Blvd, I was traveling about 21 mph while the attackers speed was approximately 18.5 mph. These speeds and locations have been verified by Garmin GPS superimposed on a Google map of the area.


PICTURE-2: A few seconds after I politely said "on your left", Paul Latshaw (red shirt) begins harassing me by yelling "on your right" which is against bicycling etiquette. After Paul Latshaw's harassment pushed me even more to the left, I sped up to 24 mph to over 28 mph to pass/escape while Latshaw and Bailey worked as a race-team only inches from my rear wheel. Garmin GPS data show I never slowed down and my speed never went below 23 mph until I stopped at Country Club Blvd to avoid a confrontation.

2 - PAUL LATSHAW "STOPS HIS BIKE AT COUNTRY CLUB BLVD TO ATTACK"
JOHN CIPOLLA AFTER SAYING "I HEAR YOU ARE A TRUMP SUPPORTER"
JOHN CIPOLLA STOPPED AND WAITED FOR THE ATTACKERS TO RIDE
AWAY


PICTURE-3: At Country Club Blvd these images were recorded after I was harassed for 4 minutes and 44 seconds over a distance of 1.81 miles where I averaged 22.94 mph and a maximum speed over 28 mph after I tried to peacefully pass Latshaw and Bailey. These Garmin GPS verified average and maximum speeds indicate I never slowed until I stopped at Country Club Blvd where I tried to escape the Bailey-Latshaw harassment. Paul Latshaw's remark "I hear you are a Trump supporter, you asshole" occurred seconds before this GoPro image was recorded. Notice in PICTURE-5 that Kenneth Bailey is seen riding down the Withlacoochee State Trail leaving Paul Latshaw far behind seemingly not bothered by anything that happened up to this point.


PICTURE-3a: Paul Latshaw dismounted his bike and walked his bike on the grass.

PICTURE-4: Paul Latshaw leaned his bike on the signpost while Ken Bailey rode away.

PICTURE-4a: Paul Latshaw yelled You piece of American shit while his bike leaned on the signpost.

PICTURE-4b:
While on the opposite side of the street I laid my bicycle on the grass and walked across Country Club Blvd to identify the unknown attacker (Paul Latshaw), determine the cause of his anger, determine his intentions and if talking would resolve the issue. Instead of talking Latshaw said "You pussy" then yells, "We got a gun, man", "I see you out here all the time" and said he was going to shoot me by yelling "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass" and confirmed his intention to shoot me by saying, "You heard me".


PICTURE-5: GUN THREATS AT COUNTRY CLUB BLVD. After being chased and harassed for 4 minutes and 44 seconds, I stopped on the opposite side of the Country Club Blvd intersection and peacefully waited for Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey to ride away. While I was totally stopped with both feet on the ground Paul Latshaw yelled, "I hear you are a Trump supporter, you asshole" (GoPro turned on). Paul Latshaw continued yelling as he slowly crossed the street. Instead of riding away with Kenneth Bailey, Paul Latshaw dismounted his bike, walked his bike on the grass and leaned his bike on the signpost yelling You piece of American shit from across the street. At this point Paul Latshaw appeared he wanted to ambush me if I rode past on my bicycle. While standing on the opposite side of the street I laid my bicycle on the grass and walked across Country Club Blvd to identify the unknown attacker (Paul Latshaw) and determine the cause of his anger. I hoped talking would resolve Latshaw's unreasonable anger or hopefully the situation would resolve itself if Paul Latshaw rode away. However, before I could say anything Paul Latshaw says "You pussy", then yells, "We got a gun, man", "I see you out here all the time", "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass", "You heard me", "We got a gun, man". As proven by GoPro audio, I never said anything that could have trigged Paul Latshaw's threats of gun violence.


3 - TRAPPED AND ATTACKED AT WEST CITRUS SPRINGS BLVD
SEQUENCE OF IMAGES HALF-WAY THROUGH ONE CONTINUOUS VIDEO 4 MIN 39 SEC DURATION

PICTURE-6, 7, 8: Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw trap me at the corner of West Citrus Springs Blvd and the Withlacoochee State Trail where they worked as an attack-team to beat me and destroy my prized aerodynamic bicycle and helmet. Please notice Paul Latshaw displays his back shirt pocket laden with heavy objects(s) that would concern anyone when that individual yells, "We got a gun, man","I see you out here all the time", "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass", "You heard me"...


PICTURE-9: Trapped by vehicular traffic after being chased and harassed from the Holder intersection.

PICTURE-10: Turned to take pictures of the unknown attackers and waited for traffic to clear.

PICTURE-11: TRAPPED BY VEHICULAR TRAFFIC. I was trapped by unusually heavy vehicular traffic (PICTURE-9) at the corner of the Withlacoochee State Trail and West Citrus Springs Blvd in Citrus County, Florida. The attackers (PICTURE-10) caught me at the intersection because I had to stop for vehicular traffic. As I attempted to turn left (PICTURE-11), Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw are behind me about to attack from behind and both sides after being pursued from the Holder intersection. My attempt to turn left was prevented by vehicular traffic that gave the attackers time to take my bicycle and attack me from behind.


PICTURE-12: AMBUSHED FROM BEHIND WHILE TRYING TO ESCAPE. Then, while on my bicycle with one shoe cleated, I tried to find an opportunity to escape. Kenneth Bailey attacked from the right side (pictured above) and Paul Latshaw attacked from the left side just out of view of my GoPro camera.


PICTURE-13: My GoPro video camera, still mounted on the handlebar, captures Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw as they continued to attack me by pushing me off my bicycle as I attempted to escape. Seconds before this image Kenneth Bailey yells, "you're going to get hurt" (proven by GoPro video). Kenneth Bailey grabbed my bicycle by the rear wheel as I held on by the front wheel as we had a tug-of-war for possession of my $5,350 bicycle. Then, Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw stole my bicycle and tossed it to the pavement. A few seconds later Kenneth Bailey forcefully threw my bicycle to the pavement making it "unsafe to ride". This violent attack by Bailey and Latshaw pushed me into the middle of West Citrus Springs Blvd where passing motorists refused to call the police even after seeing me being beaten and kicked in the head while helpless on the ground by two violent individuals. One motorist, a resident of Citrus Springs in Citrus County Florida yelled to me, "Go ahead and get out of the road" (proven by GoPro video) even after seeing me beaten to the point of unconsciousness. I took refuge in the middle of West Citrus Springs Blvd to escape the vicious Latshaw and Bailey attack only a few hundred yards from a local elementary school. Not one of several passing motorists stopped to help even after seeing me bleeding and injured. Citrus County, Florida is a lawless place.


PICTURE-14: The CCSO dismissed video of Paul Latshaw pushing me then taking my bicycle.

PICTURE-15: The CCSO dismissed video of Paul Latshaw taking my bicycle and vandalizing my bicycle.

PICTURE-16: The CCSO dismissed video of Paul Latshaw taking my bicycle and vandalizing my bicycle.

PICTURE-17: The CCSO dismissed video of Paul Latshaw taking my bicycle and vandalizing my bicycle.

PICTURE-18: The CCSO dismissed video of Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey attacking John Cipolla.

PICTURE-19: The CCSO dismissed video of Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey attacking John Cipolla.


PICTURE-20: Paul Latshaw (red shirt) clearly seen participating during the attack at the corner of the Withlacoochee State Trail and West Citrus Springs Blvd, grabs my bicycle and drags it on the ground, scratching the frame of my $5,350 bike. These images are displayed in their natural sequence. The GoPro video images (PICTURE-9 TO PICTURE-20) recorded during the attack indicates the CCSO was incompetent or biased when they dismissed important GoPro video and physical evidence proving Latshaw and Bailey attacked John Cipolla. Paul Latshaw was so emboldened by the CCSO's dismissal of this GoPro video and physical evidence that a permanent injunction against Paul Latshaw was required to protect John Cipolla and his wife from repeated threats of violence and stalking six months after the attack.

PICTURE-21: Immediately after PICTURE-20 is recorded, John Cipolla's bicycle nearly settles on the pavement after being tossed like a piece of garbage by Paul Latshaw. This GoPro image clearly shows Paul Latshaw's bicycle on the left and Kenneth Bailey's bicycle on the right while they both attacked John Cipolla. This series of images from the GoPro video proves conclusively that Paul Latshaw was off his bike during the attack and worked with Kenneth Bailey to beat John Cipolla and vandalize his property.

JOHN CIPOLLA'S BICYCLE VANDALIZED AFTER BEING CHASED, AMBUSHED AND BEATEN

The Citrus County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) dismissed then ignored conclusive GoPro video evidence of vandalism by Kenneth Bailey seen wearing the green Brick City Bicycles kit. The extreme violence of the Bailey-Latshaw attack ripped John Cipolla's GoPro video camera off his bicycle and was hidden in the grass where it recorded Kenneth Bailey throwing John Cipolla's bicycle to the pavement as Paul Latshaw wearing the red shirt looks on. In addition, the CCSO investigator (Detective James West) refused to correct the following false statement before releasing the biased criminal report.

"The Defendant (Kenneth Bailey) picks up his own bike and throws it onto the ground"

PICTURE-22 GoPro Video proved Kenneth Bailey is guilty of CRIMINAL MISCHIEF and vandalism.


PICTURE-23: High resolution GoPro video captures Kenneth Bailey throwing my bike to the pavement, making it "unsafe to ride".


PICTURE-24:
This GoPro image shows Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey picking up their bikes after they attack John Cipolla. The CCSO totally mischaracterized the attack by commenting in their biased report the violence against John Cipolla was a "physical altercation" with only one other individual. However, GoPro video proves that while trying to escape, John Cipolla was ambushed from behind by two violent individuals. Further, the dent pattern on John Cipolla's helmet proves that John Cipolla was kicked in the head and beaten while lying helpless on the ground. CCSO dismissal of GoPro video evidence and physical evidence demonstrates extreme bias. As a result of a biased investigation, Kenneth Bailey was only charged with vandalism for damaging a bicycle and denting a helmet by repeated kicks to the victim's head while Paul Latshaw was not charged with any crime. Neither individual was charged for attacking John Cipolla in Citrus County, Florida.
