Sorry about the Daily Mail link. There is a TMZ alternative.

The interesting thing is that the rider pleaded for kindness, so the villain, whose identity is known, has not been doxxed.

USAnia.  They have weird rules about electric assist which, like all the best weird rules, vary from state to state.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Turns out he was within the park rules cos it's a bike for the disabled.

But I'd expect most non-ebike riders would be unaware of that.
