James Ernst cited in case prompted by bike-rage video that went viral

Update by Michael Roberts: Citations have been issued in the bike-rage case prompted by a startling video showing a driver repeatedly honking at and harassing a pair of cyclists on an open Longmont road; see it below.

As Sam Levin details in our original post, which follows this update, the video, shot by Dirk Friel, caused a stir when it was posted on YouTube -- and the clip prompted a Colorado State Patrol investigation. Now, the CSP has reportedly hit Erie-resident James Ernst, 75, with multiple allegations.
