    Los Gatos trio arrested in assault on dirt biker

    (05-17) 10:38 PDT LOS GATOS - Three Los Gatos residents have been arrested after they allegedly strung a rope across a road and pulled it taut when a dirt biker approached, causing the rider to be thrown off his motorcycle and sustain serious injuries, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office.

    On May 16, deputies arrested Donald Bryant, 62, Donna Olsen, 46, and Edward Anderson, 48, on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and battery with serious bodily injury.

    The incident occurred around 8 p.m. on May 6, when a group of dirt bikers was returning home from a ride in the hills along Loma Chiquita Road, said sheriff spokesman Deputy Serg Palanov.

    Bryant, Olsen and Anderson had tied a rope to a tree on one side of the road and waited in bushes on the other side, he said.

    When the first rider approached the rope traveling at about 20- to 25 mph, the suspects allegedly pulled the rope taut.

    The rope caught the rider in the jaw and threw him off the bike, Palanov said.

    The second rider, who saw his friend lying on the ground on top of his motorcycle, slowed to about 5 mph and, as he was coming to a stop, saw the suspects pull the rope taut again.

    He was able to stop in time and sustained only minor injuries from hitting the rope, Palanov said.

    The first rider was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose, where he remained in a coma for five days.

    He suffered severe bone damage and tissue loss and required more than 500 stitches and titanium plates inserted in his face

    Holy crap! What kind of retards do that? And to try and do it a second time? These weren't kids pulling a prank, they're folks in their 40s and 60s.

    Sounds like they've been watching too many Wile E. Coyote cartoons. I wonder if the rider was wearing a full-face helmet, if any at all?

    They tried to pull the rope tight again officer, I swerved to try and save myself and accidentally ran both of them over in such a way that my tire was spinning on their faces while I made the 911 call.
