This GoPro Video proves John Cipolla said "on your left" and Paul Latshaw yelled "on your right" that began the harassment of John Cipolla as John passed the attackers on the Withlacoochee State Trail. John Cipolla tried to avoid a confrontation when pursued by the attackers, first by speeding up and then by stopping at Country Club Blvd to allow the attackers to proceed down the trail. In addition, Garmin GPS data prove John Cipolla needed to increase his speed from 20.3 mph to more than 28 mph to escape. The attackers speed was only about 18.5 mph when John Cipolla passed. The attackers greatly increased their speed to match speeds and worked as a race-team inches from John's rear wheel.

GoPro Video

This GoPro video proves that while John Cipolla waited motionless at Country Club Blvd on the opposite side of the road, Paul Latshaw rapidly dismounted his bicycle, leaned it on the signpost and yelled, "you piece of American shit" and "you pussy" instead of riding down the Trail with Kenneth Bailey. This GoPro video proves Paul Latshaw said "we got a gun, man", "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass" and then confirmed his intention to shoot John Cipolla when Paul Latshaw said, "you heard me".

GoPro Video

This GoPro video proves Kenneth Bailey forcefully threw John Cipolla's bicycle to the pavement. This GoPro video also proves Paul Latshaw was observing Kenneth Bailey attack John Cipolla as John was helpless on the ground when Paul Latshaw said, "Hey, Ken, Ken, Ken, let him go. I'll get him later". Meaning, it was Paul Latshaw's intention to violently attack John Cipolla in the future. Audio of John Cipolla screaming in pain and Kenneth Bailey's cruel taunts to John Cipolla as John was being beaten and tortured on the ground are omitted.

INTRODUCTION: On June 26, 2017, I was harassed, chased, beaten and my prized aerodynamic bicycle destroyed for simply 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 by stopping at Country Club Blvd to allow these violent riders to proceed down the Trail. I stopped on the opposite side of the intersection and peacefully waited for the attackers to ride away. When I stopped at Country Club Blvd, I was hundreds of feet ahead of Paul Latshaw. At this moment in time, Kenneth Bailey was slightly ahead riding down the Trail without Paul Latshaw as noted in picture-4 and picture-5. 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. When I walked over to talk with Latshaw to determine the cause of his anger, Latshaw says "You pussy" then yells, "We got a gun, man" and says he was going to shoot me by yelling "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass". After I escaped 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. Then, Latshaw and Bailey pulled my bicycle away from me knocking me to the ground and kicking me in the head denting my helmet using their cleated shoes as weapons and destroyed my bicycle. Then, Latshaw and Bailey kicked me in the 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.

KENNETH BAILEY (Green Brick City Bicycles kit) paid the following penalty for damaging my bicycle while I was riding on the Withlacoochee State Trail on June 26, 2017. Because of overwhelming GoPro video evidence, on December 7, 2017 Kenneth Bailey pled guilty to CRIMINAL MISCHIEF and as a result Mr. Bailey has a criminal record for vandalizing my bicycle and helmet. Mr. Bailey was ordered by the State of Florida to pay $1,008 for damaging my prized bicycle originally costing $5,350 when Mr. Bailey forcefully threw my bike to the pavement cracking the frame and an additional $240 for denting my helmet. My helmet was dented from repeated kicks to my head when Mr. Bailey used his cleated shoe as a weapon when I was helpless on the ground. These facts are in the official public record at the Citrus County Courthouse and are proven by GoPro video.

PAUL LATSHAW (Red shirt) paid the following penalty for attacking me (John Cipolla) while I was bicycle riding on the Withlacoochee State Trail on June 26, 2017 and then threatening my wife and stalking both of us on December 7, 2017 at the Citrus County Courthouse. A Final Judgment of Injunction For Protection Against Repeat Violence against Paul Latshaw to protect me and my wife from violence and stalking was issued by the Circuit Court in Citrus County, Florida on February 22, 2018. The Circuit Court judge stated he made the injunction permanent because he was “concerned for Mr. Cipolla’s safety”. Because the judge made the injunction permanent, Paul Latshaw has a permanent record of "Violence and Stalking" on his background. During the injunction Paul Latshaw was not allowed to come within 100 feet of John Cipolla's cars/bicycles and not within 500 feet of John Cipolla's residence. In addition, Paul Latshaw could not use or possess a firearm or ammunition and should have surrendered any firearms to the Citrus County Sheriff's Department. These facts are in the official public record at the Citrus County Courthouse and are proven by GoPro video evidence.

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 about a mile north of North Citrus Springs Blvd, I was traveling 20.5 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 28 mph to pass/escape while Latshaw and Bailey worked as a race-team only inches from my rear wheel.

PAUL LATSHAW THREATENS GUN VIOLENCE AT COUNTRY CLUB BLVD
JOHN CIPOLLA STOPPED AND PATIENTLY WAITED FOR THE ATTACKERS TO RIDE
AWAY


PICTURE-3: At Country Club Blvd these images were snapped after I was harassed for more than 4 minutes at speeds over 28 mph for simply passing Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey. Please notice 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-4, 5: GUN THREATS AT COUNTRY CLUB BLVD. 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 bicycle 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".
 

TRAPPED AT WEST CITRUS SPRINGS BLVD
JOHN CIPOLLA'S BICYCLE VANDALIZED AFTER BEING CHASED, AMBUSHED AND BEATEN

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, 10: TRAPPED BY VEHICULAR TRAFFIC. I was trapped by vehicular traffic at the corner of the Withlacoochee State Trail and West Citrus Springs Blvd in Citrus County, Florida. The attackers, Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw are behind me about to attack from behind and both sides as I attempted to turn left to go home after being pursued for several miles. Another attempt to turn right was prevented by vehicular traffic that gave the attackers time to take my bicycle and attack me.


PICTURE-11: Then, while on my bicycle with only 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-12: 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). Then, 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 $5,500 bicycle before Kenneth Bailey stole my bike and threw my bike to the pavement. 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, "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-13a: GoPro Video proving Kenneth Bailey is guilty of CRIMINAL MISCHIEF and vandalism.


PICTURE-13b: High resolution GoPro video captures Kenneth Bailey throwing my bike to the pavement, making it "unsafe to ride".





PICTURE-14, 15, 16, 17: Paul Latshaw 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.


PICTURE-18: THE DENTED HELMET: After Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey pulled my bicycle away from me they knocked me to the ground then kicked me in the head and body denting my helmet using their cleated shoes as weapons while I was helpless on the ground and wearing the helmet. Please notice the cleated shoes worn by the attackers in the previous images.

SUMMARY OF THE ATTACK: On June 26, 2017 while bicycle riding and traveling his normal speed of about 21 mph on the bicycle trail, John Cipolla passed two slower bicycle riders only traveling about 18.5 mph. Immediately after John Cipolla said "on your left" to pass the slower bicycle riders, one bicycle rider (Paul Latshaw) unnecessarily yelled "on your right" to harass John Cipolla. Then, the slower riders sped up and worked as a race-team to match John Cipolla's speed and rode only inches from John Cipolla's rear wheel. Feeling threatened, John Cipolla sped up to more than 28 mph to attempt a high-speed escape that lasted approximately 4 minutes. Again, attempting to escape John Cipolla stopped at an intersection to allow the violent riders to ride away. One of the violent riders (Kenneth Bailey) did ride away. However, the other very violent rider (Paul Latshaw) stopped on the opposite side of the intersection, yelled "You piece of American shit" and leaned his bike on the stop sign preparing to block John Cipolla from escaping down the trail. John Cipolla attempted to talk to the violent bicycle rider (Paul Latshaw) to determine his identity and the cause of the rider's (Paul Latshaw's) unexplained anger. However, instead of talking the violent bicycle rider (Paul Latshaw) issued gun threats by yelling, "We got a gun, man", "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass". John Cipolla was able to escape but was later ambushed, prevented from escaping, viciously beaten by the two bicycle riders and John Cipolla's property worth about $5,500 vandalized. Because of overwhelming GoPro video evidence, Kenneth Bailey (green Brick City Bicycles kit) pled guilty to Criminal Mischief and vandalism while Paul Latshaw (red shirt) was charged with a permanent injunction for repeat violence and stalking. These facts, proven by GoPro video did not concern the Citrus County Sheriff's Office (CCSO).

Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey attempted to deny the following events that were recorded on high definition GoPro video. However, the attackers attempt to deny their violent behavior was not successful because high definition GoPro video speaks for itself.

GoPro recorded videos, totally ignored by the CCSO, prove the following.
1) Paul Latshaw threatened gun violence. "We got a gun, man", "I'm going to put a bullet in your ass"...
2) Kenneth Bailey threw John Cipolla's bicycle to the pavement once on camera and once off camera.
3) Paul Latshaw was off his bicycle and on his feet participating in the attack on John Cipolla.
4) Paul Latshaw grabbed John Cipolla's bicycle and dragged it on the ground.
5) John Cipolla was beaten, his property vandalized and not allowed to escape.
6) Latshaw and Bailey clearly threatened John Cipolla with future violent retaliation.
7) John Cipolla said "on your left" and Paul Latshaw unnecessarily yelled "on your right".
8) Paul Latshaw and Kenneth Bailey yelled dozens of obscene words and violent threats only a few hundred yards from a school, 100 feet from a home and 50 feet from a parking lot.
9) Because of overwhelming GoPro video evidence the Florida State Attorneys Office demanded the CCSO submit a new report to correct numerous and very serious factual errors.
