Truly, as Percy Walker points out, it is open season on Wall Street types. It seems that they might not be safe to walk the streets - no less attend spin classes. Now granted, the victimized investment banker, Stu Sugarman …
“… grunted a lot, admittedly. He war-whooped. He hollered, “Great song!” and “You go, girl,” and he probably was the noisiest guy in the spin class,” according to the New York Post article.
You go, girl? [Originally, it was reported that he was a hedge fund manager — THANK THE GODS he is not. It might also explain the weird grunting and shouting] This is how it all went down according to the Post:
“First, the furious broker demanded the hedge-fund manager please stop making so much noise. “Then it escalates to ‘Shut up!’ and “Shut the f— up!”
The broker complained to the instructor, who “basically shrugs,” Davis said.
The broker then allegedly issued the final ultimatum - “If you don’t shut the f— up, I’m getting off my bike.” The hedge-fund manager said: “Stop being a baby.”
Finally, the ballistic broker dismounts and “charges my client’s bike like Leonard Marshall of the New York Giants hitting a practice sled,” Davis said.
The broker tipped the hedge-fund manager and his bike into the wall, smashing a hole in the sheetrock, Davis said. “Then he smashes him back onto the ground, with the bike falling on top of him.”
Sugarman still has no feeling in his left side. He may need more surgery.
Carter’s lawyer, Dan Ollen, called Sugarman “a piece of work.”
“The first thing he does after the incident is hop on his bike and work out another 40 minutes,” he said. “The second thing he does is hire a personal-injury lawyer and the third thing he does is alert the media.
‘Who’s kidding who?’ “
You can’t make this stuff up! A bitch slap would probably have been sufficient.
