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.
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
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.
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,
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 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
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
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.
Final Judgment of Injunction For Protection Against Repeat
Violence against Paul Latshaw to protect me and my wife from
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
PICTURE-1: As I
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
harassing me by yelling "on your right"
which is against bicycling etiquette. After Paul Latshaw's
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
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.
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
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
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 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.
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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.
