A BMW driver swerves and attempts to push a cyclist off his bike in a shocking act of aggression – caught on camera.

The victim, who only wants to give his first name of Dave, was riding back from a cycle shop when the brazen assault happened.

The young driver behind the wheel of an expensive, 64-registration white BMW swerved towards the cyclist for no good reason.

He then leaned out of his window and gave the cyclist a strong shove – but fortunately the rider just managed to stay upright.

Police are now investigating the attack in a quiet residential street in Horfield, Bristol which was filmed on a camera on the bike.

Dave, 36, said: “Last night a white BMW travelling in the opposite direction slowed and swerved across the road towards me.

“The driver leaned out of the open window, put his hand on my right hip and gave me a strong shove.

“Although it unbalanced me slightly, I was able to stay upright and no injury occurred.”
