Berserk motorist beating up bike courier captured by amateur photog

A citizen journalist snapped a jaw-dropping set of photos of a berserk motorist attacking a young bike-messenger in Toronto's Kensington Market. The incident reportedly began when the motorist tossed litter out his window, and the courier threw it back in; the motorist reportedly threw a cup of coffee on the courier and the courier reportedly keyed his car. The intrepid photographer calmly stood and fired off shot after shot of the motorist completely losing it, attacking the courier, screaming, and generally going nuts, and braved the man's charge with a baseball bat when he was noticed with his camera:

i followed the motorist back to his car to photograph his license plate number. he proceeded to open his trunk, take out a baseball bat, and charge me. i walked away, and was one of only two witnesses to stay at the scene and give a statement to police.

Many people who apparently know the courier ("Leah") have found the forum and then, Leah herself turned up. She denies keying his car, and reports that the police talked her out of charging him by telling her that she'd be charged too.
