BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A judge has backed off from accepting plea deal for a 75-year-old Erie man accused of harassing two cyclists to give victims a chance to air their grievances.
James Ernst has agreed to plead guilty to harassment and improper use of a horn.
According to the Longmont Times-Call (http://tinyurl.com/cezrt8f), Boulder County Judge Noel Blum was surprised Thursday to learn the victims were not notified of the court date.
Two cyclists recorded a video of Ernst driving his SUV behind them in September while honking his horn. Cyclists say the incident highlights increasing tension between cyclists and motorists.
