Life Imitates Art, Art Does Not Appreciate Ensuing Verisimilitude



Lucas Brunelle:

He parlayed a hardscrabble upbringing on the mean streets of Cape Cod into a career as an IT specialist who spends his weekends documenting his unnecessary risk-taking:

He's skitched and skidded his way through Africa:

But now Brunelle has taken out a pedestrian while running a red light (shocker), and it seems he may finally have met his match in the form of this taxi driver who has thoroughly kicked his ass:

A bruised and battered Beacon Hill bicyclist lambasted as “a joke” the $1,000 bail a downtown judge set today for a taxi driver he and other witnesses claim savagely beat him before trying to run him over as Lucas J. Brunelle was calling 911 on behalf of a woman he’d just struck with his bike on Tremont Street Friday night.

Wait a minute.  Brunelle thinks the bail is a "joke?"  But I thought this sort of thing is exactly what makes urban cycling so much fun!  At least that's what he told "Bicycling" magazine in that interview:

Fuck bike advocacy. It's the cars that make shit fun. Without cars, we couldn't do skitches off SUVs. We couldn't get bruised and cut up; we couldn't commiserate. I love traffic. It's an evil river, sure, but I love the city streets.

Sounds like that cab driver did exactly what Brunelle wanted him to do.  If anything, Brunelle should pay him $1,000.  Guess that "evil river" isn't so cool when he's the one getting wet.

So what happened?

Brunelle, a cinematographer and bike racer, called the chaotic scene, “a group ride gone bad.”

"Group ride gone bad," eh?  I guess we know what the title of his next video is going to be.  Anyway, who would have thought a "group ride" running red lights during rush hour in Boston could possibly go bad?

A woman walking in a crosswalk on Tremont Street with her sister Friday shortly after 6 p.m. was hit by Brunelle on his bike when he ran a red light, according to police reports released today. The woman was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with head injuries after, Brunelle claims, he flagged Chandler down to help him help her.

“I was trying to get a taxi for (her) and this guy comes out and hits me and then he tries to run me over with his car,” Brunelle said. “I said, ‘We were on a group ride. Someone got an injury, they’ve got to go to the hospital.’ He started getting in my face and ‘(expletive) you’ and so I shot back and I said, ‘(Expletive) you.’ He gets out and he attacks me. He tried to run me over.”

Okay.  So Brunelle hits this poor woman and then tries to send her off in a taxi?  Why, so he could continue his "group ride?"  Yeah, I'm sure it's a real treat to get hit by Lucas Brunelle:

"Hi, I'm daredevil cinematographer Lucas Brunelle.  Every seat I have is as sharp as a razor, so I always play to roll.  Here's $5 for cab fare, a travel packet of Kleenex for the bleeding, and a waiver for you to sign so I can put you in my next video.  Sorry for the inconvenience and have a nice day."  [Remounts and rides off into sunset.]

Wham, bam, thank you ma'am.

By the way, none of this is to excuse the taxi driver's behavior in any way, but I don't suppose there's any chance Brunelle or some other member of his "group" may have gotten him riled up earlier in the ride, is there?

No, of course not.

Wow, Brunelle's cinematographic oeuvre is really going to bite him on the ass on this one.  Unless the taxi driver's lawyer is completely incompetent he should get off faster than a premature ejaculator in Amsterdam's red light district.

What's most amazing to me as a New Yorker though is that neither the police nor the media seem to be blaming the cyclist in any way:

I was especially amazed that it's only a $20 ticket for running a red light on a Bicycle in Boston--a ticket which Brunelle didn't even get.  Meanwhile, in New York City, if a taxi driver runs into a woman on the sidewalk and severs her leg all he has to do is blame a bike messenger and he won't be charged:

I guess that's why Brunelle only visits New York City to make videos and then leaves the local cyclists to deal with the ill will these sorts of exploits generate.

Still, if nothing else, I really hope Brunelle's cameras were rolling during this episode, because the resulting footage is probably almost as good as this.  I'd also like to make a personal entreaty to Brunelle, as one aging Fred to another:

Dear Lucas,

You're getting too old for this shit.  Come on.  Ripping around town with a bunch of people 20 years younger than you?  Your reflexes aren't what they once were.  Fortunately the pedestrian wasn't killed, and fortunately despite being assaulted you're up and riding.  This is a great opportunity to take back some of the silly stuff you said about "bike advocacy" and admit you're a little too old to be shooting the rapids on the "evil river."  Instead, do your part to help tame it a bit.  Come on, you're a cyclist!  You're one of us!  We break your balls a little bit but we still love you.  Embrace your advancing age and acknowledge that pedestrians should be able to cross the street with the light and not worry about getting clobbered by some old dude making promotional videos for Cinelli.


--Wildcat Rock Machine

Speaking of the "evil river," remember Dulcie Canton?

Well, I recently received the following email from her informing me that the NYPD has closed her case, and they're blaming the media while they're at it:


I just wanted to thank you for reminded your readers that NYPD still lax when it come to prosecuting reckless drivers who kill maim or injure cyclists and pedestrians! My lawyer and I found out a few weeks ago at the 83rd precinct monthly community meeting that they CLOSED my case! The head detective attributed this closure to the fact that we went to the press and when the owner of vehicle heard, he "lawyered up". Detectives never questioned him! We only went to the press four weeks after crash when it became apparent that NYPD was not cooperating! Richard Rivera Jr. only lives a stones throw away from precinct and where the crash happened!
I have joined the TA Group, "Families for Safe Streets" and the 83rd precinct is on our "shame list". We want to see NYPD and DA start enforcing "Vision Zero".
On top of all of this, I'm having surgery on shoulder Friday. The bike shop I work for Adeline Adeline closing and not re-opening! I'm recovering from injuries, holidays coming, I now have to look for a new gig.


So basically the message from the NYPD is "You shoulda kept your mouth shut like a good little cyclist."

Her relief fund is still open, by the way:

Between "Line of Sight" and "Vision Zero" there sure are a lot of blind spots.

Is the "River of Evil" under the mean street of NY (Ghost Busters II) or is it the East River? I'm a little unclear.

PotbellyJoe said...

In the middle of the day
I go biking on the street
Through hoards of traffic
An evil river so deep
I must be biking for something
Something I’ll video tape
But the crosswalks are there
And pedestrians cross

And even though the evil river is wide
I ride down every evening and I videotape
And try to cross to the opposite side
So I can prove that I’m better than an ape

(My apologies to Billy Joel who was civilized enough to wield a Porsche rather than a bike riding cycle.)

Unfortunately, Dulcie Canton and everyone else should no that "vision zero" means zero vision, as in "see no evil, get an donut and harass some people that they've profiled as being drug dealers and steal their money instead." Investigating crimes requires work and professionalism, which are things that the NYPD seems to lack.

Kind of hoping a future report about how Brunelle wins $1M (US fun coupons) against the cabbie followed by the woman ped winning $1.1M (US fun coupons) from Brunelle.

Bryan said...

Fuck Brunelle. I watched his Line of Sight on the yutoobs and was utterly dismayed there are people like him who think only about themselves to the point they put others at risk.

Euro Spondee said...

I was out and about on Market St in San Francisco yesterday afternoon, and was most gratified to see a phalanx of SFPDs finest pulling cars off the road east of 10th St where they are all supposed to make right turns to keep Market St flowing for bikes, taxis buses and the cute old F streetcar. When I came back an hour and a half later, they were still at it.
So not everything in the world is completely terrible - at least one PD figures it can make its ticket quota from our four-wheeled friends.

Freddy Murcks said...

Bryan et al. - I am not defending Brunelle, per se, but we focus on cyclists becuase we are cyclists. People who drive do stupider and much more dangerous stuff a billion times a day everyday. And that's true of the street racer punks all the way down to the idiots who won't stop playing with their fucking phones while they are driving.

Taxi interaction stories, very timely.
Last night's commute- East 36th Street before (west of) 2nd Ave at 8:25pm. I am in the "Parking lane" almost on the curb, out of everybody's way, not impeding anyone's progress.
Yellow Prius V taxi driver goes way out of his way towards the curb towards me and throws a bottle at me, all the while laughing. I ride after, he goes through lights, nearly kills a few peds in the chase to get away. Light traffic lets him get away.

Except for 7C10B plate. (I think it's available on line).
Yellow 2013 Prius V, 7C10B, not agency owned. Young Paki kid behind the wheel.
Cops and TLC? I don't need to be laughed at again.

Sometimes you hit it right on the head.

I'm not trying to get all serious and shit but, when we celebrate people doing stupid shit on bikes in traffic, thats what the non-cycling public locks onto.

The mayor can't evvision any policy that won't fit on a bumper sticker, the police give tickets only to people they don't feel threatened by and the media panders to the masses, a relative few of whom ride bikes.

It's up to cyclists to change the dialog. Otherwise stupid assed rules will be made for us by politicians and enforced by cops who ride home in their SUV's.

Portland and Amsterdam are making a better effort than NYC, which as you have noted, has been voted the Best Bicycling City on the Whole Fucking Planet.

semi serious cyclist said...

For his public service commitment he will receive for concussing a pedestrian in the crosswalk, Brunelle should arrange to team up with Heine and Team Rapha to shoot a video of a Rando group ride, all 650b and dynohub headlights, terrorizing squirrels on Oregon fire roads and stopping for dopios at an artisan roastery after 100k.

Freddy Murcks,

The guy is from Pakistan / Pakistani heritage (saw his f/b stuff). I didn't know abbreviating Pakistani was an offensive slur.

I am not thinking of the noble Pashtun, but the bad guys.
If he starts menacing and threatening cyclists and assaulting them with bottles for no reason I am thinking the PC bullshit is kind of out the window. For all I know he's from Abottabad and is driving a taxi until the 'opportune moment'.

Sorry, I was fucking assaulted by someone who should be happy to be in a country where no one is shooting at him or compelling him to be an IED. Again, I didn't do shit to this guy.

Now for all our international friends, we are so happy you found little ol’ us in San Diego. We are also happy to offer international shipping via USPS first class international mail, but that service does not come with a tracking number or a second love note from PayPal. We ship international orders once a week and shipping times vary. One order may take seven days and the next two weeks. We know that you are very excited to receive your caps and the delays may be agonizing, but it is still pretty amazing that our caps can travel from beautiful San Diego to anywhere in the world travel.

JLRB, I donated to that 15/16 year old kid who got his face scraped off at the Red Hook Crit 2 years ago. The emails were only updates from his mother. I received no other fundraising letters.

For the record, I agree with Brunelle this much: I have problems with bike advocacy. My biggest problem is are the ideas that 1) the more cyclists the better and 2) we should support any and all fellow cyclists. I hate hate HATE guys like him.

A couple of weeks ago, this guy ran a red light on 96th street (where people keep dying). He ran it so late. It was well after the yellow, well after that little grace period after the light turns red where the bold and fast can skitter across. It was very red and this genius moseyed (he thought he was fast and was not) into the intersection and he nearly got turned into by a taxi. Dude turned to look at me for support and I told him that he's stupid and lucky he's not dead. I'm not sorry.

I don't know who I am disgusted by more. The NYPD for refusing to investigate a clear cut hit and run. Complete with video, witnesses, and the ID of the vehicle. Or Lucas Brunelle whose agro bike riding resulted in him hitting a pedestrian and trying to stuff her into a cab. Instead of calling an ambulance.

I hope both of the victims lawyer up and sue the people who hit them until they have nothing left.

flank_steak said...


You are looking at the issue like the typical conscientious cyclist.

Drivers say and do nothing when their fellow cagers strike pedestrians or worse. The drivers know they have a great deal and will not say or do anything to change that deal for the worse.

In fact, cagers will jump on every opportunity to defend their caging freedoms with nonsense that the Wildcat blogulates about with great skill and ironical themes.

Either drivers accept their good deal may be coming to an end to facilitate multi-use streets, or bicyclists need to disabuse themselves of the collective guilt of the occasional bad cyclists. (All within the laws of your fair city/locale.)

But, the current status quo gets bicyclists nowhere but victimized.

I guess, like it or not, we are stuck with a microscope on us. Cars can kill hundreds but if a bike knocks someone over? Oh boy, here come the pitchforks.

Lucas is not only an incredible doofus but also an irresponsible and dangerous narcissist who doesn't deserve to ride a bike. Hopefully the poor woman that he hit will sue him. She would easily win with all of the documented evidence of his dangerous behavior. I'm certain there are 100 slip and fall lawyers in Boston who are calling her right now. Such sweet, sweet karma for his inane videos of his dangerous law-breaking riding to come back and bite him. He is so lucky he didn't seriously injure or kill the lady, but someone like him would likely get over that pretty quickly. Hopefully Lucas is reading this and seeing what his other fellow cyclist think of him. The beating from the cab driver is less than you deserve for hitting that lady and hopefully there will be more to come, you little prick.

There are 1,500 bike messengers on the streets of New York City.

$1,000 ain't much if you live in Beacon Hill and Cape Cod. If you're a taxi driver who has to dodge cyclists, it's hard to come up with

Hi Mr. Rock Machine - It's also legal to jaywalk here as long as there isn't a crosswalk within 300 feet - but even if you break this rule the fine is $1. motorists are technically supposed to yield to you too - but you'll get in a lot of trouble if you hit someone in a crosswalk - it's up to you to prove you had the right of way. Things are a little different here.

Are people supposed to apologize for having relatively rich, full lives that make it possible to see non-cyclists as also being people? You're as big a nerd as the biggest Fred, don't fool yourself that you're different because of your (probable) ridiculous haircut and poorly rendered tattoos. You don't impress me.

Immature cyclists can get away with reckless behavior on Massachusetts streets because the MassBike lobby re-wrote the road rules, explicitly prohibiting bike offences having an effect on a driving license or vehicle insurance! So, those $20 tickets Brunelle didn't get for running a red light or failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk don't even get paid. There is no mechanism to enforce unpaid cyclist tickets!

The cab did not hit Brunelle. Its more like he stood in front of it and then jumped on the hood trying to stop it.

Another fact: the cab driver had a medallion for the town of Brookline, not Boston. He would be subject to a fine and firing for picking up a passenger in Boston as Brunelle wished.

She was looking gorgeous in a skinny black dress last night. Her name is Danna Singh – an elegant Asian hot independent female escort in Delhi. Love you Danna Singh for filled my night with love, romance and fun. I found you at danna.in and it was a good decision. You were so wild and naughty with your performance on bed. Love you Danna Singh and thank you danna.in for this romantic date.
