Police blotter

The California Highway Patrol bicycle incident tweets are often car vs juvenile on a bike and hit and runs, but you occasionally see some more intriguing drama.

Consider last night’s report from Avocado Heights in unincorporated Los Angeles County in the San Gabriel Valley.

Traffic Collision - No Injuries
-- 9:12PM VEHICLE VS BICYCLIST -- OCCURRED DOWN VALLEY AT COVINA
-- 9:13PM RP [Reporting Party] KNOWS THE MOTORIST THAT HIT HIM -- NOT SURE IF IT WAS DONE ON PURPOSE
-- 9:20PM REQUEST WE ASCERTAIN FURTHER FROM RP, WAS INFO EXCHANGED? WHAT MAKES HIM THINK THIS MAY HAVE BEEN INTENTIONAL, WERE PARTIES 415 [cop talk for "disturbing the peace", i.e. a fight] PRIOR?, DOES RP KNOW CURRENT 1020 [location] OF MOTORIST?

In yesterday’s CHP dispatches there was also a report of a bike vs a parked car and a driver who “appeared to [give] money to resolve the issue”.
