Joyriders who attacked cyclists in Kentucky charged with assault

Two cyclists were injured in Louisville, Kentucky, on June 2nd when someone threw a biology textbook at the cyclists out the window of a truck. The case has received national press attention, because one of the cyclists was John Schnatter, founder and CEO of the Papa John's pizza chain, and the other was competitve cyclist Curtis Tolson.

Now two of the teenage boys who were in the truck have been charged with assault. According to police, the boys were joyriding and playing pranks on pedestrians and other motorists.

More details are in an older KCStar story and a more recent story.
