British bus driver hits cyclist, sentenced to 17 months in prison (Video)
A British bus driver who intentionally hit a bicyclist with whom he argued with has been sentenced to 17 months in prison.
The Irish Times reports that last April, the bus driver, Gavin Hill, and a cyclist, Phillip Mead, got into an argument over how closely Mead was riding to Hill's bus in Bristol, England.
The 29-year-old bus driver was then caught on camera lurching to the left and hitting Hill while he tried to ride away. The cyclist suffered a broken leg and wrist in the incident.
“You used that vehicle as a weapon to bully and intimidate the cyclist who, in the end, was struck by that bus," a judge told Hill after he pleaded guilty to several charges, the Times reports.
