UPDATE: If Marshall Grant Neely III is convicted of the federal charges, he will face a lot of time behind bars:
- 2-12 years in prison on the reckless aggravated assault charge
- up to 5 years in prison for lying to a federal agent
- up to 20 years in prison for obstructing justice
Also, Neely said he “was a good man” and described the hit as a “soft hit.” What? Watch the video and imagine how that felt to the cyclist!
Two Tennessee men were riding their bikes down the historic Natchez Trace, which is a designated bicycle route. (There are even signs warning motorists that cyclists can take up the whole lane, so they must make room.) On Saturday morning, Greg Goodman — who does mortgages — and his friend Tyler Noe were riding their bikes down this beautiful road. It was the first time Tyler had ridden a bike since he was a kid.But what started out as a gorgeous day turned into almost-tragedy when a black Volvo sped by and intentionally hit Tyler. The car honked as it approached, then swerved over into the cyclist. A witness said that he’d seen the same car try to hit cyclists before on that road. But — surprise, surprise — Greg had a GoPro camera on his helmet. Recorded the whole thing.
Watch the video by clicking CONTINUE. It’s now been seen millions of times… much to the chagrin of Mr. Neely.
