Police arrested a driver Friday afternoon after a bizarre chase in which two cyclists were hit by a car in Southeast Portland.
It all started around 12:30 on 1000 block of Southeast Clinton Street. Police said 46-year-old Johnny Eschweiler was driving along when he reported a cyclist kicked his car. Officers said Eschweiler sped up and hit the cyclist, who rolled onto the hood of the car, smashing the windshield.
The car continued on about 75 feet, sideswiping a car and hitting a truck before turning a corner where another cyclist heading towards the car was then hit, investigators said.
Police arrested Eschweiler and charged him with two counts of attempted assault.
The cyclists, 25-year-old Ben Ramsdell and 41-year-old Timothy Mastne, were taken to OHSU. Their injuries were not life-threatening.
Neither cyclist was wearing a helmet.

Two counts of attempted assault? How ’bout attempted murder? I mean, that is what he was trying to do, right, to kill those cyclists?
That is someone’s bike under that car. That could have been the cyclist as well. Attempted assault? Looks like he did more that just “attempt” it. He done done it.
