    Another outrageous thing nobody has mentioned. The kid calls the cops and when they show up they're all set to arrest him until he shows them the footage proving that the lady was full of shit and assaulted him unprovoked. If he didn't have the foresight to record everything he'd be in jail right now.

    The assumption is demonstrably false. Here's the video from the quad. At no point are any people shown more than a few pixels high.

    Before you make any more knee-jerk assumptions about what was happening, think for a second what you'd assume if the genders were reversed. What if this had been a 17 year old girl flying a quad at the beach, and a 24 year old man had attacked her and ripped her shirt off? Would you immediately conclude that she's a pervert and clearly in the wrong?
