Investigation Stalls After Cyclist Hit in Fit of Road Rage in Beverly Hills

The Beverly Hills Police Department follows numerous leads after widespread press. A spokesman for the department says Monday they have run dry.

The search for the driver of a late-model BMW who followed a cyclist into a Beverly Hills alley and rammed him into a dumpster continues, according to police.

Lt. Lincoln Hoshino told Beverly Hills Patch Tuesday that numerous individuals provided leads after surveillance video of the incident was released in late April.

Hoshino added that those leads have now "run dry" and the investigation has stalled.

The news comes as Los Angeles County celebrates Bike Week, with repair seminars at local bike shops, a Bike to Work day and a Blessing of the Bicycles planned for Thursday at Good Samaritan Hospital near Downtown Los Angeles.

The license plate was not legible or was it a new car???

It's worth noting that the BHPD didn't announce the crime, which they describe as "attempted murder," or call for the public's help until three weeks had passed. Three weeks! No wonder leads are cold. In the police 'media advisory' (which you won't find on the BHPD site - even in the press release section), the car is described as a 2008 BMW 328. In fact it could be as new as 2013. It's also white without a moonroof and no visible plates, which should make this needle findable in a haystack.
