KPTV: Eugene police: Man in SUV hits, drags cyclist, then punches and beats him with a bar

From KPTV: "The bizarre brawl started just after 5 p.m. Monday and ended in 44-year-old Glen M. Fisher’s arrest, police said.

Officers responded to 7th and Van Buren Street after residents reported that a Chevy Suburban had hit a parked vehicle. A few minutes later, there was a reported hit-and-run at North Grand and Railroad Boulevard, police said.

Witnesses told police that Fisher hit a man on a bicycle from behind. The 67-year-old cyclist was pulling a cart full of plants when he was hit and then dragged in front of the SUV, according to police.

After hitting and dragging the cyclist, Fisher allegedly pulled over, exited his SUV and started punching the cyclist, later picking up a bar and hitting him with that, too."
