a KGW video.

KGW reporter Jane Smith says Mastne picked the bike up from River City Bicycles this morning. A Seattle couple wanted to buy the bike for Mastne after seeing KGW’s interview with him that was aired on August 19th.
According to KGW, Mastne’s road rash is nearly healed, but he still walks with a limp due to swollen legs. Here’s a quote from him that aired on TV today:
“Oh, I appreciate it! They’re in my heart now. I wish there were more people like that. They passed it on to me and I’ll pass it onto someone else if I get a chance.”

*Please note that although KGW continues to report “a bicyclist kicked his car,” that remains merely a claim made by the driver Johnny Eschweiler. Police investigators have found no indication that his car was kicked. We discussed this in further detail in a previous post.
In other news about this case…I was present at the arraignment of the driver, Johnny Eschweiler today. He retained his not guilty plea to the charges of attempted assault in the first degree and assault in the first degree. I’m still awaiting details of the Grand Jury hearing last Friday and will report on that once documents become public.
