Man's alleged retaliation threatens riders

A man in California elevated trail user conflict to a new level after he said he "had nearly been run over by a mountain bike rider" according to the Associated Press.

52 year-old Warren John Wilson allegedly retaliated by digging almost 50 holes with dimensions of about one by two feet (0.3 by 0.6 meters) in Laguna Lake Park. With some of the holes hidden on the trail, a few cyclists reported going over the bars, but no major injuries resulted. Wilson was charged with a single felony count of vandalism according to the police.
