Bicyclist Convicted of Careless Driving After Flipping Off Cop

Most people would not find a bicyclist flipping off a cop to be an interesting article, but, to a legal nerd like me, it is thought-provoking for a few reasons. First, the man's name was David Smith. The Huntingdon County District Attorney is also named David Smith. While the idea that a local prosecutor would break the law by giving a cop the middle finger did cross my mind, I am quite sure that the David Smith in this Westmoreland County case is a different David Smith and not the head prosecutor in Huntingdon County. I have worked on aflipping_the_bird_censored.jpg few cases over the years with the Huntingdon County District Attorney, and I am quite certain that he would not engage in this type of behavior.
