Except that is simply not true. Remember that video Swanson shot? According to the Times Free Press, it clearly shows the black Chevy, the faces of the occupants, the license plate. And that's not the only video. The TVA parking lot has security cameras, so the pepper spray attack was caught on video, too.
But the next day, the teens told a very different to story to the Marion County sheriff's department. Shouldn't the two very different stories these teens told investigators raise some questions in the Marion County sheriff's department, and at the Marion County district attorney's office? And since the teens told two very different stories to law enforcement, shouldn't investigators be asking whether the teens filed a false police report (a felony in Tennessee)?
As they talked, Swanson soon learned that the tables had been turned on him. The teens had already been there, telling their "side" of things. According to the teens, Swanson had reached into their car and tried to grab the passenger, and the kid had used a keychain pepper spray canister to ward him off. The parents were prepared to swear out a warrant for Swanson's arrest. Just like that, Swanson had gone from assault victim to perpetrator. And Swanson wasn't the only one coming under a cloud of suspicion Veal also expressed her concern about the parents' fear that the local cycling club was out to get them, and the comparisons the parents were making between the cycling club and the Hells Angels. Veal and Hargis appeared to be urging him to drop the charges, Swanson says. As Detective Hargis pointed out, "It's their word against his."
But they didn't get arrested. Instead, the case was transferred to the Marion County Sheriff's Department, which has jurisdiction over the area.
And what about the circumstantial evidence? If Swanson on his bike, mind you was the assailant, why did the Chevy driver come back for more? If Swanson was the assailant, why did he call TVA security, and Chattanooga police twice, while the teens made exactly zero calls to police? If Swanson was the assailant, why did the teens confess to the Chattanooga police, and why did one teen's mother call him after the attack to "apologize profusely"?
You see, when the Chattanooga police paid a visit to the teens on Sunday, the day after the incident, the teens confessed to everything. "They saw Mr. Swanson again and approached him. They exchanged words. [Name redacted] then sprayed Mr. Swanson in the face with Mace," Chattanooga police officer Amanda Morgan wrote in the report. And their parents were in the room when they confessed. It's all right there in the police report.
So Swanson took the photos down, and the next day, went to the Marion County Sheriff's Department to talk with investigators.

buzzing him again so close that the rear tire narrowly missed running over his foot. And of course, the teen driver flipped Swanson the bird as he drove off.
It didn't take long for several people to contact Swanson, identifying his attackers. The next day, a Chattanooga police officer went to the suspects' homes and talked with them. They confessed to the attack. The officer told Swanson that with the evidence they had, the teens could be arrested now.
face. It wasn't water it was pepper spray, and Swanson was immediately blinded and choking for breath. He called 911 and dispatch sent police and an EMS to meet him. An asthmatic, Swanson began to fear that he might die as his airways closed up and he struggled to breathe.
Last Saturday, Anders Swanson took a ride on Raccoon Mountain, near Chattanooga, Tennessee. The area is set to host the US professional road and time trial national championships this May, but on this day, Swanson would have the mountain to himself.
Police arrived 15 minutes later, and then the EMS arrived and treated Swanson on the scene. Unable to drive, Swanson got a ride home from a friend. That night, Swanson made stills from the video he took, and posted them on Facebook, asking if anybody could help identify the three suspects, and warning other cyclists, runners, and hikers about the attack.
And what about the three felonies that the Marion County sheriff's sergeant threatened Swanson with? There is no such law in Tennessee. After consulting with several attorneys, Swanson now believes that the sergeant was trying to intimidate him into dropping the charges against his assailants. The big question here is, "Why?"
But this time, he caught the whole thing on video. When TVA security arrived on the scene, they recommended that Swanson call the Chattanooga police, which he promptly did. The police met him at the bottom of the mountain and took his report. Then he rode back up the mountain, to where he had parked his car. As he neared the top, he says, a white Toyota 4Runner approached, rolled past him, and stopped. After he had passed the 4Runner, it rolled past him and stopped again. And again. And again.
As he was riding, he says, a black Chevy truck approached from behind. A teen was at the wheel, with another teen riding shotgun. Swanson was buzzed, and as the teens passed, they blasted him with an air horn. TVA personnel said they were on the way, Air Max 90 Anniversary Cork so he rode ahead to the stop sign where they would meet him. Then, he says, the truck came back, Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Br - Total Crimson
teen rolled his window down and asked "How's it going?" Swanson asked if he was the driver of the black Chevy; the teen said no. Then he raised a squirt gun and sprayed Swanson's Black Air Max 90 Essential
The teens were afraid? Give me a break. The only thing they were afraid of was a felony charge for aggravated assault. And their word against his? Come on, let's get real here. The evidence is right there in the video. It's right there in the circumstantial evidence. And it's right there in the police reports. Let's talk about those.
He finally arrived at the parking lot where he had parked his car, and began changing. That's when the 4Runner pulled up next to him. Swanson says the teen in the passenger seat was the same one who had been driving the black Chevy that buzzed him. The Nike Air Max 90 Black Grey And White
Swanson says he received a call from sergeant Tim Prince, who told him to take down the photos of the three teen suspects. He warned Swanson that he had committed three felonies by posting the photos. He also warned Swanson that if he pressed charges against the teens, the parents would be pressing felony charges against him.
And that's when things got very, very weird.
What does it all mean? It's not just "their word against his." There's other evidence in this case, and a lot of it, and the evidence tells the real story of what happened that Saturday on Raccoon Mountain. The truth is there in the evidence, and sooner or later, it will come out.
