Police: Man Tried To Hit Woman, Children With Dirt Bike

OCALA, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Police have charged a man with aggravated assault after they say he tried to run over a woman and four children with his dirt bike.

WKMG-TV reports that 19-year-old Daniel Lincoln was driving aggressively toward a woman and four children, the oldest of them being 9 years old.

The woman and children were on a golf cart and trying to get out of the way when Lincoln drove at them, according to police.

Police say that Lincoln shouted racial slurs to the woman and children as he drove by.  The victims told police that Lincoln drove by their home, gave obscene gestures, and yelled obscenities, according to WKMG.

Lincoln told police that he did not like the victim because she is always calling the cops on him.  He said he had no intention of hitting her.

Lincoln was booked into the Marion County Jail.
