COMPLETE DESCRIPTION OF
THE ATTACK ON JOHN CIPOLLA
BY TWO ANGRY REGISTERED DEMOCRATS
BEGAN AFTER ONE ATTACKER YELLED

"I hear you're a Trump supporter", "You piece of American shit"
"We got a gun, man", "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass ..."

John Cipolla was cornered and attacked at the intersection of the Trail and West Citrus Springs Blvd
 

On June 26, 2017 about one week after Steve Scalise (R) was shot, John Cipolla was minding his own business when he politely passed two unknown bicycle riders on the Withlacoochee State Trail. Later, John Cipolla was unexpectedly threatened with gun violence, beaten and his aerodynamic bicycle damaged and made unsafe to ride by the two attackers who were later identified as registered Florida Democrats. Every aspect of the attack was videotaped using John Cipolla's GoPro video camera. However, the Citrus County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) response to the recording of Paul Latshaw (video) yelling, "We got a gun, man", "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass" was to ignore the video evidence and conceal the attackers' identity for months even after seeing and hearing video evidence of vandalism, gun threats and threats of future attacks.

 

AFTER BEING HARASSED BY LATSHAW AND BAILEY, JOHN CIPOLLA CAME TO A COMPLETE
STOP AT COUNTRY CLUB BLVD AND WAITED PEACEFULLY FOR THE ATTACKERS TO RIDE AWAY

Paul Latshaw makes gun threats at Country Club. After peacefully passing Bailey and Latshaw, John Cipolla stopped on the opposite side of Country Club Blvd and waited peacefully for Latshaw and Bailey to ride away. Instead of riding away, Paul Latshaw dismounted his bike, walked his bike on the grass, leaned his bike on the signpost and yelled.

"You piece of American shit"
"We got a gun, man", "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass" (video)

 

SEVERAL MILES AFTER PAUL LATSHAW YELLED "WE GOT A GUN. MAN", JOHN CIPOLLA
ESCAPED BUT WAS AMBUSHED BY LATSHAW AND BAILEY AT WEST CITRUS SPRINGS

After escaping gun threats at Country Club Blvd, Latshaw and Bailey ambushed John Cipolla at the corner of the Trail and West Citrus Springs Blvd and attacked John Cipolla again while he was trying to escape. These are only a few of many GoPro images showing Paul Latshaw (left) taking John Cipolla's bike and Kenneth Bailey (right) throwing the bike to the ground. GoPro video images prove Paul Latshaw was off his bike during the attack and worked with Kenneth Bailey to attack John Cipolla.

Because Detective Jimmy West's biased investigation was going nowhere and the attackers remained unknown we appealed to bicyclists in the local area by posting pictures of Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw along the trail. We learned from a CCSO "insider" the attackers were only located and questioned because of an anonymous tip generated by our postings. Despite John Cipolla being under constant threat of violent attack the CCSO only confirmed the attackers' identity after we informed them that our investigation identified the attackers on Strava.com. An example of the bias demonstrated by the CCSO investigator(s) is the refusal to correct the following BOLD-FACE LIE in the criminal report despite solid video evidence.

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

 

AFTER SEVERAL MONTHS OF STONEWALLING THESE WERE THE
RESULTING CHARGES AGAINST KENNETH BAILEY AND PAUL LATSHAW

1) On December 7, 2017 KENNETH BAILEY pled guilty to CRIMINAL MISCHIEF and was ordered by the State of Florida to pay John Cipolla $1,008 for damaging his bicycle originally costing $5,350 and an additional $240 for denting John Cipolla's helmet by kicks to the head while helpless on the ground.

2) On February 22, 2018 PAUL LATSHAW was issued a Final Judgment of Injunction For Protection Against Repeat Violence to protect John Cipolla and his wife from repeat violence.

3) The Florida State attorney stated with witnesses present that CCSO investigator, Detective James "Jimmy" West "will be instructed to correct several errors and omissions in his report" that included misidentifying the two defendants, falsely stating Kenneth Bailey did not forcefully throw to the ground and damage John Cipolla's bicycle and other facts proved by three separate GoPro videos recorded over 15 miles while John Cipolla tried to escape attack. Omissions include no mention of John Cipolla's dented helmet and no mention that John Cipolla was attacked by two individuals proven true by GoPro video. Kenneth Bailey, Ocala, FL and Paul Latshaw, Citrus Springs, FL. Detective Jimmy West, Citrus County, FL. These facts are public record at the Citrus County, FL Courthouse. Please see the complete description of CCSO corruption below.

GOPRO VIDEO SEQUENCE OF EVENTS
KENNETH BAILEY AND PAUL LATSHAW ATTACK

ATTACK DESCRIPTION: On June 26, 2017, I was harassed, chased, beaten and my prized aerodynamic bicycle vandalized after passing two unknown bicycle riders now known as Paul Latshaw and Kenneth "Ken" 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 calmly walked across Country Club Blvd to identify the unknown attacker (Paul Latshaw), determine the cause of his anger, determine his future 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". I quickly discovered that Paul Latshaw's admitted and confirmed intention as proven by GoPro video was to shoot me with the gun he said he possessed. 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 unsuccessfully to escape this attack, Latshaw and Bailey pulled my bicycle away from me knocking me to the ground as proven by GoPro video and kicked me in the head denting my helmet using their cleated shoes as weapons and vandalized my bicycle as proven by GoPro video. 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 Battery and Malicious Mischief (Vandalism) charges 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.

SEE GARMIN MAP OF THREE SEPARATE BAILEY-LATSHAW ATTACKS
VIDEO 1 - HARASSMENT BEGAN SOON AFTER PASSING BAILEY AND LATSHAW
JOHN CIPOLLA INCREASED SPEED FROM 24 MPH TO OVER 28 MPH TO ESCAPE HARASSMENT

The facts presented in the following GoPro images from video provided to the Citrus County Sheriff's Office were not mentioned in the criminal report produced after the investigation conducted by Detective James West. Contrary to the bold-face lies presented in the biased criminal report, GoPro video proves John Cipolla safely passed the attackers after saying "on your left" and John Cipolla was harassed by Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw.



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 GPS 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 speed data posted on Strava prove my greater average speed kept me safely out of reach of the attackers. 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 and to allow the attackers, Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw to ride away.


PICTURE-2a:
After first passing then trying to escape the attackers this GoPro video image was recorded 50 feet before I reached the North Citrus Springs Blvd intersection. Because I thought I was well ahead of the attackers I felt safe enough to turn my GoPro video camera off and safely and very slowly crossed the intersection. Garmin speed data posted on Strava confirm I was averaging 21.7 mph when this image was recorded and was several seconds ahead of the attackers while Kenneth Bailey only averaged 19.9 mph to this point because he was in my draft. However, Kenneth Bailey was able to catch me because I safely and very slowly crossed the intersection while Kenneth Bailey blasted through the dangerous intersection at very high speed. At this point in time Paul Latshaw was well behind both of us. However, I decided to stop at the next intersection (Country Club Blvd) to allow the attackers to (hopefully) ride away because I was concerned for my safety and never thought I did anything to make anybody angry. No words were exchanged except in the intersection when I politely said to Kenneth Bailey, "You forgot your friend" because I thought why would anybody leave their "friend" so far behind. My GoPro was not turned on until I reached Country Club Blvd when Paul Latshaw yelled, "I hear you are a Trump supporter", "You piece of American shit", threatened he had a gun and was going to shoot me in the ass.

VIDEO 2 - PAUL LATSHAW "STOPS HIS BIKE AT COUNTRY CLUB TO ATTACK"
JOHN CIPOLLA AFTER SAYING "I HEAR YOU ARE A TRUMP SUPPORTER"

The facts presented in the following GoPro images from video provided to the Citrus County Sheriff's Office were not mentioned in the criminal report produced after the investigation conducted by Detective James West. Contrary to the bold-face lies presented in the criminal report GoPro video proves the following.

1) After being chased for nearly 5 minutes John Cipolla tried to avoid a confrontation by coming to a complete stop on the opposite side of Country Club Blvd and with both feet on the ground peacefully waited for Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey to ride away. Started GoPro after Paul Latshaw yelled, "I hear you are a Trump Supporter".

2) Instead of riding away, Paul Latshaw stopped on the opposite side of the intersection and yelled "You piece of American shit", "You pussy", "We got a gun, man", "I see you out here all the time", "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass" and confirmed his intention to shoot by saying, "You heard me".
 


PICTURE-3: JOHN CIPOLLA STOPS TO ALLOW THE ATTACKERS TO RIDE AWAY. 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. NOTE: Paul Latshaw's anger at being passed by John Cipolla and not being able to keep pace with John Cipolla when John Cipolla was trying to escape was the main reason and basis of the vicious Bailey-Latshaw bicycle attack. Their obvious dislike of President Trump was another reason for the attack.


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-4: Paul Latshaw yelled You piece of American shit while his bike leaned on the signpost.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. After escaping that life-threatening situation but not understanding the danger, I traveled 8 miles south.


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

The facts presented in the following GoPro images from video provided to the Citrus County Sheriff's Office were not mentioned in the criminal report produced after the investigation conducted by Detective James West. Contrary to the bold-face lies presented in the biased criminal report these images prove Kenneth Bailey vandalized John Cipolla's bicycle, Paul Latshaw was off his bicycle, Paul Latshaw participated in the attack on John Cipolla and Paul Latshaw forcefully took John Cipolla's bicycle.

PICTURE-6: CHASED AND HARASSED FROM THE HOLDER INTERSECTION. Thinking I was safe I traveled south about 8 miles from Country Club Blvd but decided to turn around and go home early. However, immediately after crossing the Holder intersection the attackers appeared out of nowhere. While I traveled north to West Citrus Springs Blvd from Holder, Paul Latshaw now traveling south darted from behind Kenneth Bailey and continued the attack. This image was recorded soon after Bailey and Latshaw began chasing and harassing me from Holder. Already injured, I pedaled like crazy to the next intersection to avoid being attacked in an isolated part of the Withlacoochee State Trail. My GoPro camera now on, stayed on for about 5 minutes and recorded the entire Bailey-Latshaw attack. No words were exchanged in this part of the attack until I was ambushed and attacked again at West Citrus Springs Blvd. This aspect of the Bailey-Latshaw attack is described in the Final Judgment of Injunction For Protection Against Repeat Violence issued against Paul Latshaw by the Circuit Court in Citrus County, Florida on February 22, 2018.

PICTURE-7, 8, 9: 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"...

ATTENTION
CCSO INVESTIGATORS WORKED TO COVER-UP THE FOLLOWING VIDEO EVIDENCE
OF THE VIOLENT KENNETH BAILEY AND PAUL LATSHAW ATTACK


PICTURE-10: Trapped by vehicular traffic after being chased and harassed from the Holder intersection.

PICTURE-11: ATTACKERS CIRCLE AROUND TO ATTACK. I turned to take pictures of the unknown attackers and waited for traffic to clear. However, escape was made impossible because Kenneth Bailey while taunting and swearing at me pushes me backward and at the same time circles around to attack from one side while Paul Latshaw quickly dismounts his bike, lays his bike on the grass and rushes me from the other side.

PICTURE-12: TRAPPED BY VEHICULAR TRAFFIC. I was trapped by unusually heavy vehicular traffic (PICTURE-10) at the corner of the Withlacoochee State Trail and West Citrus Springs Blvd in Citrus County, Florida. The attackers (PICTURE-11) caught me at the intersection because I had to stop for vehicular traffic. As I attempted to turn left (PICTURE-12), 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-13: 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-14: ATTACKED AND MY BICYCLE TAKEN BY BAILEY AND LATSHAW. My GoPro video camera, still mounted on the handlebar, captures Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw as they continued to attack me (pictured) 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 or to contact the police even after seeing me bleeding and injured. Citrus County, Florida is a lawless place and a true HELL HOLE.


PICTURE-15: CCSO investigators IGNORED video of Paul Latshaw pushing me then taking my bicycle.

PICTURE-16: CCSO investigators IGNORED video of Paul Latshaw taking and vandalizing my bicycle.

PICTURE-17: CCSO investigators IGNORED video of Paul Latshaw taking and vandalizing my bicycle.

PICTURE-18: CCSO investigators IGNORED video of Paul Latshaw taking and vandalizing my bicycle.

PICTURE-19: CCSO investigators IGNORED video of Paul Latshaw and Ken Bailey attacking John Cipolla.

PICTURE-20: CCSO investigators IGNORED video of Paul Latshaw and Ken Bailey attacking John Cipolla.

GOPRO CAMERA RIPPED OFF BY PAUL LATSHAW ROLLS INTO THE GRASS

PICTURE-21: PROOF PAUL LATSHAW PARTICIPATED IN THE ATTACK. Contrary to the biased CCSO investigator(s), Paul Latshaw wearing the red shirt participated during the attack on John Cipolla at the corner of the Withlacoochee State Trail and West Citrus Springs Blvd. These images presented in their natural sequence clearly show Paul Latshaw grabbed John Cipolla's $5,350 bicycle and dragged it on the ground. Video images numbered PICTURE-10 TO PICTURE-21 prove the CCSO investigator(s) dismissed GoPro video and physical evidence that both 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-22: Immediately after PICTURE-21 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.

BICYCLE VANDALIZED AFTER BEING CHASED, AMBUSHED AND BEATEN. The CCSO investigator, Detective James "Jimmy" West never mentioned in his criminal report that Kenneth Bailey forcefully threw John Cipolla's bicycle to the pavement making the bike "unsafe to ride". In addition, the CCSO ignored GoPro video evidence of vandalism and on multiple occasions refused to correct the following false statement in the criminal report. The following statement in the criminal report is a bold-face lie.

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


 
PICTURE-23 AND PICTURE-24: High resolution GoPro video captured Kenneth Bailey seen wearing the green Brick City Bicycles kit throwing John Cipolla's bike to the pavement, making it "unsafe to ride". GoPro Video proved Kenneth "Ken" Bailey guilty of vandalism. 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 Ken Bailey throwing John Cipolla's bicycle to the pavement as Paul Latshaw wearing the red shirt looks on.

SPECIAL NOTES ABOUT KENNETH "KEN" BAILEY

Kenneth Bailey told the judge while under oath the following bold-faced lie that proved Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw lied about attacking John Cipolla and vandalizing his property. Kenneth Bailey lied when he stated to the judge while under oath.

"The bike got between us during the fight"

However, Kenneth Bailey had no comeback when the Florida State Attorney countered Kenneth Bailey's bold-faced lie when the Florida State attorney told the judge the following fact proved by GoPro video that was previously dismissed and totally ignored by the CCSO investigator, Detective James "Jimmy" West.

"Your honor, the GoPro caught Bailey throwing the bike"
Caught telling a bold-faced lie, Kenneth Bailey pled guilty to CRIMINAL MISCHIEF

Kenneth Bailey told the judge in a Citrus County courtroom with witnesses in attendance that a Detective assured Kenneth Bailey that his vandalism charge would be "dismissed". The following statement by Kenneth Bailey preceded his guilty plea for vandalism of an expensive bicycle and helmet.

"I was surprised when I receive this (vandalism charge) and
thought it was fixed. The
Detective said, we can get it dismissed."

Detective James "Jimmy" West signaled his bias when he stated directly to John Cipolla.

"You can't hide a gun in spandex"

The CCSO refused to identity the attackers for months after the attack even after video evidence proved that Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey threatened future violent retaliation when Paul Latshaw yelled,

 "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"

"Hey Ken, Ken, Ken, let him go. I'll get him later"
"You're dead man. You piece of American shit. You're dead motherfucker"
and Kenneth Bailey yelled.
"You better ride in another trail motherfucker"

Our personal favorite was the following statements from a supervisory CCSO Lieutenant who did not read the excerpt from the CCSO web site that claims, "our dedication to protect and serve".

"Its not our job to protect you"
and the following bold-face lie
"You broke the law by not running away"


It did not matter to the corrupt CCSO that John Cipolla tried to avoid a confrontation by stopping at Country Club Blvd and then attempted for over a half hour to "run away" from the attackers but "there was nowhere to run being miles from home on an isolated bicycle trail" as John Cipolla attempted to explain. In addition, the CCSO Lieutenant misquoted Florida law and attempted to intimidate John Cipolla by saying, "You broke the law by not running away". We support most law enforcement but the CCSO like the FBI is a rogue organization that needs to be reformed.

EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER THE LAW?

KENNETH BAILEY pled guilty to MISDEMEANOR CRIMINAL MISCHIEF and was ordered by the State of Florida to pay John Cipolla only $1,248 for property originally costing almost $6,000. However, according to Florida Statutes Section 806.13, the following are the range of penalties associated with criminal mischief.

1) If damage to property has a value of $200 or less, it constitutes a second-degree misdemeanor, which carries with it a maximum punishment of 60 days in prison.

2) If damage to property is over $200 but less than $1,000, this is a first-degree misdemeanor, which can land the offender in jail for up to one year.

3) If damage to property was over $1,000, then it constitutes a third-degree felony, which can result in a maximum prison sentence of five years.



PICTURE-25:
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.

 


EVIDENCE REFUSED BY THE CCSO INVESTIGATOR
MAP OF THREE SEPARATE BAILEY-LATSHAW ATTACKS

Only a few days after starting his totally biased criminal investigation, Citrus County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) investigator, Detective James "Jimmy" West refused to receive any clarification of John Cipolla's GoPro video sequence of events and physical evidence (dented helmet) and yelled.

"Shut up, I've made my decision"
CCSO Detective James "Jimmy" West

The Florida State Attorney stated the following after seeing the detailed map (below) and associated videos that explained John Cipolla was attacked three separate times over several miles while attempting to escape. This information was refused by CCSO Detective James "Jimmy" West in his statement "Shut up, I've made my decision".

"This information is perfect and explains everything"
Florida State attorney with witnesses present


Video 1, Video 2 and Video 3 ran continuously and uninterrupted during three separate attacks

GARMIN MAP OF THE ATTACK: Three GoPro videos, related images and detailed descriptions of the Bailey-Latshaw attack were totally dismissed by the Citrus County Sheriff's Office in their biased investigation. Video 1, Video 2 and Video 3 were recorded when I was in danger and trying to escape separated by several miles and several minutes between videos when I thought I was safe from attack. In this map from "Start", I traveled north to the north end of the Trail. Then, I traveled south, passed the attackers (Video 1) and stopped at Country Club Blvd to avoid a confrontation (Video 2). After escaping Paul Latshaw's gun threats at Country Club Blvd (Video 2), I traveled south. However, I ended my bicycle ride early and traveled north where I was attacked again after passing the Holder intersection (Video 3) by Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw who were bicycling in the opposite direction. Soon after passing the Holder intersection it was clear I was being hunted by Bailey and Latshaw then attacked again (Video 3) at West Citrus Springs Blvd.
