Neal Simpson, editor of the Brookline Patch hyperlocal site, scoops the major media sites (apparently) with a story about a driver who was so pissed off with a bicyclist (who he accused of damaging his car) that he tried to run him down by driving through part of the Olmsted Park.
Police say Robert Nicosia, 66, sped through the park from the Jamaicaway to Pond Avenue, driving over grass and flower beds and weaving through trees at a time when the park was filled with people enjoying the warm Saturday afternoon.
A witness estimated the driver's speed at "30 to 40 miles per hour".
The suspect is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
