This GoPro Video proves John Cipolla said "on your left" and Paul D. 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 28 mph to escape. The attackers speed was only
18 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 D. 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 D. 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 E. Bailey forcefully threw John Cipolla's
bicycle to the pavement.
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.
PICTURE-1: As I
Kenneth Bailey and Paul Latshaw I was traveling 20.5 mph while the attackers speed was
approximately 18.0 mph. These speeds 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 pushed
me even more to the left, I sped up to 24 mph to 28 mph to pass
while Latshaw and Bailey worked as a race-team only
inches from my rear wheel.
PICTURE-3: After being
chased for about 4 minutes, I waited patiently on the other
side of Country Club Blvd for Paul Latshaw to continue
riding down the Trail to join Kenneth Bailey. Instead,
Latshaw continues yelling as he slowly crossed the street
and appears he wanted to ambush me if I rode past on my
bicycle. I hoped talking would resolve Latshaw's
unreasonable anger or hopefully the situation would resolve
itself if Latshaw rode away.
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. However, 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.
These images were snapped after I
was harassed for more than 4 minutes at speeds up to 28 mph
for simply passing Latshaw and Bailey. Please notice Kenneth
Bailey is seen riding down the Trail leaving Paul Latshaw
far behind. At this point Latshaw yells, "I hear you are a
Trump supporter, you asshole" (GoPro turned on),
"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",
"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".
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.
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 after Paul
Latshaw yelled, "You piece of American shit", I was attacked,
injured and my property vandalized while bicycle riding on the
Withlacoochee State Trail in Citrus County, Florida. 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. Paul Latshaw
was clearly recorded yelling, "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", "You heard me..."
The attackers attempted to deny the OBVIOUS crimes recorded
on GoPro video. In fact, my GoPro videos prove Paul Latshaw
threatened to shoot me with a gun, prove Kenneth Bailey threw my
bicycle to the pavement, prove Paul Latshaw was off his bicycle
and on his feet participating during the attack, prove Paul Latshaw grabbed my
bicycle away from me and prove that I was severely beaten. The
attackers attempt to deny these facts were not successful
because the GoPro video speaks for itself.
