Someone just emailed me a link to Phil Stanford’s column in the Portland Tribune. They got an interview with the guy that beat up Randy. Turns out his nickname is “Gater” and he’s an ex-boxer! Here’s an excerpt:
“Gater says he was on his way to work that morning when this guy – who’d been keeping the bus from passing him for several blocks – up and stopped in the middle of the Hawthorne Bridge. … At which point, Gater, who happens to be an ex-boxer, got off the bus and told him to move it. … When he didn’t, Gater says, he threw just one punch, and not a very good one at that. … As for the police, Gater says, he’s not particularly concerned, since by his calculations the statute of limitations expired Monday.”
Just one punch? Looked like more than that to me. And “not a very good one”…wow I’d hate to see what would have happened to Randy if the guy really landed one…as it was Randy split his lip open and took a trip to the ER.
