WV parking fracas leads to assault verdict
A West Vancouver SUV driver who punched out a disabled man after he took the driver to task for parking in a handicapped spot on Marine Drive was found guilty of assault by a judge in North Vancouver provincial court.
The altercation quickly blew up after John Zacks - who was born missing part of his jaw bone and who suffers from a progressive muscle disorder known as multifocal motor neuropathy - asked Gabriel Morovik why he had parked his SUV in a handicapped spot near the intersection of 17th Street and Marine Drive. Morovik told him it was no big deal because he'd only been in the bank for a minute. But Zacks, whose medical problems have left him with a limp as well as limited use of his hands and arms, told Morovik that it was a big deal, and asked what kind of person he was that he would park in a handicapped spot. Morovik then put his SUV into gear and moved forward as though he was going to ram into Zacks' vehicle. The two men continued to yell profanities at each other until Morovik jumped out of his vehicle, walked up and punched Zacks in the jaw, knocking off his glasses and knocking some of his teeth loose.
Morovik then ran back to his SUV, jumped in and put it in reverse, doing a U-turn before speeding away, swerving to avoid other cars on the street.
Morovik was fined $750.
