Bicyclist Draws Knife at Motorist

By: Casey Westfall

On Saturday, around 2:40 p.m., a bicyclist was traveling on Palmetto Park Road when he was cut off by a Jeep. Enraged, the bicyclist followed the driver of the Jeep home and pulled a knife on him.

According to Boca Raton Police, the suspect, Ryan Scott Rigney, 24, followed Anton Wingeier, 53, to his home on Northeast Fourth Street, and began screaming at him about cutting him off, then he drew a knife at him.

Rigney then began slashing the spare tire of Wingeier’s Jeep, then he broke the taillight with his bike lock, and before running away, slammed Wingeier’s hand into door jab of the tailgate.

Boca Raton Police found and arrested Rigney near Northeast Mizner Boulevard, and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, property damage, and battery.
Rigney was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail, but was released on Sunday after posting $3,000 bail.
