A Los Angeles Superior Court jury on Monday found Dr. Thompson guilty of assaulting cyclists by abruptly stopping his car in front of them on a hilly Los Angeles County road last year.

He was found guilty on two counts of reckless driving, two counts of battery, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of mayhem and could face as much as five years in prison.

Ron Peterson, one of the cyclists, testified that Thompson drove past him and a fellow bicyclist on a narrow stretch of Mandeville Canyon Road in Brentwood, honked his horn and yelled at them to “ride single-file.”

Peterson testified that he yelled an expletive at Thompson. That’s when Thompson swerved in front of the bikers and hit the brakes, Peterson testified.
