A video uploaded to YouTube earlier this week shows a bat-wielding unapologetic Texas man arguing with a pack of bicyclists that he allegedly brake checked and forced to crash.

The video, taken by one of the cyclists, depicts the aftermath of a crash which was allegedly the result of 74-year-old driver Sherman Clark pulling in front of the cyclists and slamming on his brakes.
Clark had reportedly first screamed for the group to get off the road, then taunted the cyclists before brake checking them.
“Once he saw me in his mirror, he veered right and slammed on the brakes. I had no time to react,” Rick Sauvageau, one of the cyclists, told KHOU-TV.
Sauvageau suffered a fractured wrist, injured shoulder and hurt knee as a result of the crash.
“It was beyond me that the guy would do that in the first place,” Sauvageau said.
In the video, Clark says he is holding the bat "to protect" himself. He can then be seen leaving the scene of the accident in his truck, running over one of the bikes in the process.

Police said he later returned to the scene where he was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and criminal mischief.
KHOU-TV said they were unable to reach him for comment, but noted he had posted bond.
