I saw this on the local news last week. You can’t make this shit up:
A Pacific Gas & Electric worker rammed by a driver from Washington state has a broken leg and will need to remain in Community Regional Medical Center for a couple more days.
The 37-year-old worker, who has been with PG&E for five years, asked not to be identified. But he was talking to family members and in good spirits Saturday, said Denny Boyles, PG&E spokesman.
“It’s not his belief that anyone should be angry with the driver,” Boyles said. “He just hopes the man gets the help he needs.”
Fresno County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Jett Simmons McBride, 54, of Tacoma, Wash., for ramming his car into the worker. McBride was booked into Fresno County Jail early Saturday on suspicion of attempted murder. His bail was set at $1 million.
About 2 p.m. Friday, McBride drove his car toward a PG&E work crew and their truck, wedging workers between the two vehicles along McKinley Avenue near Marks Avenue west of Highway 99.
McBride had picked up a hitchhiker who said McBride was making racist remarks when he came upon the PG&E workers, one of whom was black.
McBride lodged the black worker between his car and the work truck, got out of his car and began beating the worker and attacking others who tried to stop him.
The hitchhiker then got out of the car and started hitting McBride with a hatchet, officials said.
The hitchhiker eventually knocked out McBride, who is 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 290 pounds, according to jail records.
You have to watch the video to truly appreciate Kai the Homeless Hitchhiker.
