The Story (Team Psycho!)
A raging cyclist fed up with aggressive Manhattan drivers took matters into his own hands yesterday, jumping on the hood of a limo that clipped him and smashing in the windshield with his fists. Bike messenger-gone-wild Perzeus Forte, 20, also ripped out the front passenger window, tore the shirt of driver Darr Mohammed, 49, and clocked him in the face during the savage road rage attack around 1 p.m., sources said. “He hit me and kept going,” Forte later fumed to The Post. “I’m sick of this.” Forte’s rampage began while riding his bike up Sixth Avenue in Chelsea, where Mohammed grazed him around West 19th Street. The limo kept going until he got stopped by a red light at West 20th Street. That’s when Forte flipped out, ditching his wheels and sprinting 100 yards to the car. He leaped onto the hood while screaming, “I’m going to kill you! I’m going to kill you, motherf- - -er!” according to one witness.
The Story (Part 2)
“He was running like he was possessed. I just couldn’t believe how mad he was,” said Mohammed, who was on his way to a job in Midtown. “I swear to God I thought I was a dead man,” the shaken Mohammed said. “He was going to kill me.” Forte crushed the windshield with his two open palms while repeatedly shouting, “I’m going to kill you! Get out of the car!” the witness said. The belligerent biker then jumped off the hood and grabbed the half-open driver’s-side window, shaking it back and forth until it shattered, the witness said. Forte allegedly socked Mohammed in his left eye and ripped the breast pocket of his blue dress shirt. Mohammed, who lives in Bayonne with his wife and daughter, suffered a black eye. “I was not going to leave my car. He would have ripped my head off,” Mohammed said. “This has never happened to me. I have a family at home.” Fellow bikers peddled up to Forte and calmed him down before he could do further damage, according to sources. He then turned his attention to his blood-soaked hands, plucking out shards of glass while waiting for the cops. Even though Mohammed didn’t want to press charges, Forte was arrested on charges of misdemeanor assault and harassment. He was given a desk appearance ticket to return to court at a later date. “This will cost me about a thousand [dollars],” Mohammed said. “I’m just glad to be alive.”
…imagine fighting to this song. (Can “Behind the Curtains” by Surreal Demise be our musical direction?)

Word Of Advice
Biker messengers are f*cking tough.
Side Note: Don’t steal bikes bro.
You Should Be Nice To New York Cyclists
At all times.
Chains are with bike messengers at all times. Seriously, it’s dangerous enough trying to bike in NYC with all the crazy taxi drivers. Sometimes (more often than not) it feels like they like to graze cyclists on purpose. Please, no one wants to see more ghost bikes..
