SEATTLE – A bicyclist was arrested early Sunday after he collided with a man at a Capitol Hill intersection, then allegedly stabbed him during a fight afterward.

Police and medics were called to the intersection of Broadway and Pine just before 2 a.m. Seattle Police spokesperson Det. Patrick Michaud foot officers showed up quickly and found a man with stab wounds to his abdomen. They also found a second man holding a folding knife, and quickly took him into custody.

The injured man was treated at the scene, then taken to Harborview Medical Center for further treatment. He is in serious condition, though Michaud said the victim’s injuries were not life threatening.

Michaud said witnesses told officers that the victim was crossing against the intersection signal when the bicyclist collided with him. The two men then started to fight, and during that fight is when witnesses say the victim was stabbed.

The 40-year-old bicyclist was also taken to Harborview for an ankle injury. After his release, he was booked into the King County Jail for assault.

      From the sound of things I would say 100% of drunks crossing against the light are assholes…… but no, you’re right, lay it all on the cyclist (SMH)

      I totally agree. They want all the rights that vehicles get on the roadway but aren’t ready to take the responsibility. They are a pain in the ass and need to be kept OFF the roads. Besides, they don’t pay use tax. We motorists do.

    I witnessed this. The man who was stabbed was attacking the bicyclist and continued to provoke more fighting after he was stabbed. He was so drunk that he did not even realize he was bleeding profusely. Finally a couple of men broke up the fight and the bleeding guy walked over to where a few of us were standing and I said “are you alright? You’re bleeding!” That’s when he picked up his shirt and saw the stab wound. I’m pretty sure that was when he first noticed he was injured. When the police arrived, the man was running around the middle of the street bleeding everywhere. The police officer came up to him and he said “call the police!” and the officer said “I am the police.” The man continued to drunkingly freak out until the police brought him down to the ground. The biker was injured as well and was laying in the bike lane. I felt like it took a very long time for the ambulance to arrive which was discouraging. Sometimes the victim may not actually be the victim.

      I am assuming here that you immediately went to the police station and filled out a witness statement. Right?

    The era of absolute narcissistic entitlement, it’s the EXCEPTION when you find a bicyclist that obeys the appropriate laws that apply to them, despite having 8′-16′ paved bicycle paths many so called “bicycle-ecogreeny ragers” find it necessary to ride in the roadway, block traffic, behave passive-aggressively (cowardly) toward law bidding drivers and pedestrians. Top 5 List of Irresponsible Drivers: 1) Bicyclists 2) Whale-Tail Ricers 3) Red Corvette Drivers 4) BMW 5) Porsche Drivers, all of which selfishly think the world owes them something.
