This video is getting a lot of play on our local news stations because the incident took place at 16th and Tejon in Denver. Witnesses say the car floated/ran the stop sign (obvious in the video), knocked down a skateboarder in the crosswalk, and then honked at him. The skateboarder jumped up, smashed the car’s windshield with his board, and took off with the car’s passenger in pursuit. One report said the skater was caught 3 blocks later but doesn’t say what happened then. (What kind of reporter finds out the the passenger caught the skater but doesn’t say what happened next?)
Reports said the people on the sidewalk were lined up to get into a popular local ice cream shop. The car, a $250,000 McLaren 570S, was reportedly a rental from Mile High Drives in Wheat Ridge. It’s not known whether the driver was the owner or had rented the car but the owner later told KCNC that he may file charges. Police have seen the video but since neither party filed a report, they’ve taken no action.
Another local report said a new windshield on that particular car will cost approximately $4,500.
As of this evening, the video was approaching 3 million views on YouTube.

I’d have smashed the door, costs a damned sight more than a windscreen,but then I’m a nasty grumpy old man XD
In this day and age, that driver’s lucky the kid didn’t have a gun.
Or maybe the kid’s lucky the driver didn’t have a gun.
Hadn’t thought of that
Sad that I should think of it. I envy your not having thought of it.
Since there is no way to privately message you: follow me please. I too need acknowledgement from peers.

I’ve a sledgehammer in my satchel. Care to borrow it, mate?
I’ll be gratified in the truest since if you’ll follow me. I KEEP IT REAL IN CYBERSPACE (no fear, no needless shame), my Lord.
I think I’ve managed to sign on as a disciple; you might like to reciprocate, and follow my meagre efforts.
Thought I had! Going to look into it right now.
Taking road rage to a whole new level!
Yep, cars aren’t the only things on the road, although a lot of drivers do seem to think they own the roads.
There exists at least one paedestrian who co-owns those roads. As long as I’m alive, there exists at least one. Please: OPPOSE ALL FORMS OF FASCISM, mate. Too. Many. F__king. LAWS. Too many laws in too many nations Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! “Right of way?” Hows about this: Let’s coexist; you don’t run me over when I’m skateboarding with the green light; in recompense I flash you the peace sign. Hm?
Skateboarder rage! Yikes!
See what conspicuous consumption hath wrought! FUCK THE OWNER OF THAT CAR with a skateboard.
Have always thought conspicuous consumption was low class. Increasingly, in today’s society, it might actually be dangerous, making yourself a target.
NEVER LIVE IN FEAR, MATE!
Okay, forget the fear part. Just don’t be a conspicuous consumer, period. It’s not cool.
But is the “Earth” TRULY finite, mate?
Regardless of stop sign, you hit a ped, you are deep doo-doo! Yikes!
Ran a stop sign and hit someone. Double deep doo-doo.
Sing along, won’t you?
“I smell a law sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot.”
Judge I lest I be judged: the driver was/maybe still is PREPOSSESSED by SOMETHING; He is unhappy in his heart. Poor b__ch.
Glad the kid wasn’t hurt.
Me too. Could have been so much worse.
