Can't take too much time to go into details, but today at the Tigard Auto Center (http://bikeportland.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1640), in a physical confrontation with the owner, he tried to bite me. I managed some video, but I cannot upload it until I get home tonight...

Come out to the Tigard 5th Tuesday City Council Meeting and hear my tale.

I called the cops, they came out in force.

Wow, Tigard's answer to Mike Tyson. Stay safe, man! Glad you got that on video.

Good thing he missed. Had you been bitten, you would have had to have rabies shots.

(Sorry for the cheap shot - I couldn't resist)

Cold blooded animals don't carry rabies.

I mean really, I think I stopped biting people when I was three years old...

With a nod to Hall and Oates

Whoa here he comes, watch out boy he'll chew you up..
Whoa here he comes, he's a man-eater...

Of course if he bit my finger, I'd have been out of touch... and he'd be out of time

Someone prepair the Rubber Room for Sam, Please...

I know now why I wasn't a videoographer, and the message in my Fortune cookie today "You may laugh now, but tonight..." Between Sam and the Tigard Auto Center (http://bikeportland.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1640) fiasco, and the underwhelming response to the 5th tuesday meeting tonight, today bit...

Links to the other video...

You can look at the full set (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ufobike/sets/72157605634284220/) on my flickr page...

I'm limited to 90 seconds per video on flickr, and I was trying to figure out if my camera was or wasn't working while taking these images...

I didn't catch it when he was trying to bite my finger. As you can see in the images, I kept my camera out of his face despite his inches from my nose. he poked my camera, hit my camera with his phone after he tried to grab my camera, he repeatedly called me a "MOTHERF**KER" he demanded that I get off his property (I was on the sidewalk). When I didn't and while I was pointing out the sidewalk to him, he tried several times to bite my finger!!! Had he managed to do it... Well, I'll leave that up to you to imagine (Not a pretty image)... Several cops came when I called Non-Emergency...

Later today, I took this image...

Perhaps someone clued him in...

This is where his vehicles should be parked, he only needs the cement curb stops, and to remove the painted stripes on the sidewalk and it'd be golden...

Still, ODOT and Washington County can't demolish this blight fast enough...

I kid you not, I had a run in with the exact same person roughly 4 years ago, on a July Afternoon- while riding my bike.

As I rode north to the transit center, he blew into the parking lot of the NAPA parts store- turned left, failed to yield, missed me by a foot. When I pointed out the error of his ways, he physically threatened me. As much as I would have enjoyed introducing him to the joys of an Aikido Z-lock and ripping some tendons out of his joints, I decided he wasn't worth the Attorney Fees and time, so I hopped on my bike and went to work while he shouted insults and did the things small men do.

Does that sound familiar?

This guy has a pattern of behavior that needs correcting.

Oh, yeah, that him Exactly...

If there is such a thing as Karma, I'd think that it would have him come to grief under the wheels of his own car (ie his lift fails when he's fixing it). You know, one where there nobody to blame but himself... Unfortunatly, his wife is his match (like the evil yorkies...). I got to listen to them both screech at me in their favorite english phrases... "F**K YOU!!! YOU GO F**K YOUSELF!!! MOTHERF**KER!!!" (actually, now that I think about it... they deserve each other).

And I don't think that a sit in would do anything other than endanger lives. Sam, and his wife are a menace. Perhaps they deserve a spot on The Watch List... (http://bikeportland.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1730), but I have yet to determine which car is theirs... I hadn't thought to look.

Oh, yeah... today's pics...

No, he didn't get the idea...

This shows how close to the curb someone parked this car at the Tigard Auto Center...

Sorry about the lousy framing, I took this from quite a distance to prevent Sam from trying to take a bite out of cyclist...

When is this going to end??!!!

Is Tigard at all responsive to your concerns?

Maybe Tigard could choose that very spot for a railing or a planter box :)

Maybe the Chamber of Commerce could force the owner to put in tire stops [curbs] before issuing their next business license. Definitely file the complaint with them.

The Tigard Police now will not come out for *ME* because of the long history of problems between the Tigard Auto Center and Myself (barring a physical altercation). If others catch him, and are willing to put their names to the complaint, perhaps they will. However "because there is no clear indication as to where the sidewalk is, the police cannot do anything" according to Sgt Fox I spoke with yesterday. I was told that this is a Code Services issue.

What's it Gonna Take?

"what's it gonna take?"

A few *accidentally* damaged cars?

Pedestrians with those dangly key chains on the sidewalk is a *normal* occurance... right?

Tigard sounds a lot like Hillsboro... the squeeky wheel must be the problem.

Code Enforcement is a City Planning Function, IIRC.
