On July 4th, 2008, former Emergency Room Doctor Christopher Thomas Thompson was involved in an incident on Mandeville Canyon Rd in Los Angeles where he was accused of stopping his car in front of two cyclists. One of the cyclists went through the rear window, and the other flipped over the car and landed in the road. The cyclists say that there was another incident on the same road, where they barely avoided hitting the rear of Dr. Thompson’s car. Today, Dr. Thompson was found guilty of charges of assault with a deadly weapon, reckless driving causing specified bodily injury, battery with serious bodily injury, and mayhem. He was handcuffed immediately following the verdict was read, and is being held without bail until sentencing. Dr. Thompson is facing up to five years in prison.
