  1. Tall black dude with a basketball tournament shirt? Looks like a coach. The detective should call the local college and high school basketball coaches to ID their colleague. Should take no more than four calls to ID the guy if he’s from anywhere between LA and SF.

  2. The pictures they are showing are photos of a computer screen. How about taking a screenshot on the actual computer so we aren’t looking a photo of a photo, with terrible resolution? Would hope our PD would try harder than this. I wouldn’t turn in a meaningless report for work or school with this poor quality, lol.

  3. Did I say I sided with the man that drove off? No I did not in any way shape or form all I said is road cyclists are the worst and that must have struck a nerve with you to write back, you must be a “sports cyclist” too.

  4. It would still be a hit-and-run.
    “Penalties for Hit and Run in California
    The consequences for a hit and run conviction are very confusing. If you are charged with hit and run causing injury under VC 20001, you could face up to 364 days in jail and fines of up to $10,000. A felony is punishable by up to three years in jail and a $10,000 fine.”

  5. I’m not sure how a significant other came into play but ok I mean if that makes you feel like more of a man sure go a head. All kidding aside you sound like a douche and you have to live with that so I do feel sorry for you and if you have a significant other.
