Former firefighter Charles Alexander Diez pled guilty yesterday to assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and was sentenced to 120 days in jail, according to news reports.
While Alan Ray Simons pulled his son in a child trailer behind a bike, Diez yelled at Simons telling him he put the boy’s life in danger before shooting at Simons’ head. The bullet passed through Simons’ helmet but missed his head by a hair.
Diez testified that, “I was the one who felt truly, truly threatened” by the vicious cyclist out in the open as Diez sat inside of his car and pulled out his gun.
I haven’t heard if Simons got a new bike helmet to replace his damaged one.
