NORTH FORT MEYERS, Fla. (WKRG/BIKER DAD) — Police in Southwest Florida are searching for a group of sport bikers accused of raising cane on a road, then turning their rage on a driver who didn’t like it.
Police say the bikers were weaving in and out of traffic in North Fort Meyers on their performance bikes when a driver yelled at them. Police say the men jumped off their bikes, then smashed all of the windows out of the car. That’s when, according to investigators, the bikers turned their rage on the driver. The bikers beat the driver with their helmets and even a large wrench, police say. They also started kicking the driver until bystanders stepped in to break it up.
