Now before we go further, here is the legit story from my local paper, and yes - this happened about 3 miles away from where I live.
A Pacific Gas & Electric worker rammed by a driver from Washington state has a broken leg and will need to remain in Community Regional Medical Center for a couple more days.
The 37-year-old worker, who has been with PG&E for five years, asked not to be identified. But he was talking to family members and in good spirits Saturday, said Denny Boyles, PG&E spokesman.
"It's not his belief that anyone should be angry with the driver," Boyles said. "He just hopes the man gets the help he needs."
Fresno County Sheriff's deputies arrested Jett Simmons McBride, 54, of Tacoma, Wash., for ramming his car into the worker. McBride was booked into Fresno County Jail early Saturday on suspicion of attempted murder. His bail was set at $1 million.
About 2 p.m. Friday, McBride drove his car toward a PG&E work crew and their truck, wedging workers between the two vehicles along McKinley Avenue near Marks Avenue west of Highway 99.
McBride had picked up a hitchhiker who said McBride was making racist remarks when he came upon the PG&E workers, one of whom was black.
McBride lodged the black worker between his car and the work truck, got out of his car and began beating the worker and attacking others who tried to stop him.
The hitchhiker then got out of the car and started hitting McBride with a hatchet, officials said.
The hitchhiker eventually knocked out McBride, who is 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 290 pounds, according to jail records.
The PG&E worker who was hurt will need six to eight weeks to recover. But, Boyles said, his main concern Saturday "was getting a new pair of boots because his were cut off" by paramedics.

With that legit stuff out of the way, our local FOX affiliate got an interview with the homeless man who saved the day, a man who goes by Kai. Here is... what quite possibly is the most hilariously awesome interview I've ever watched - take in mind, they aired this interview uncensored on the 10 o'clock news with a minor disclaimer before it. Stephen Colbert has already picked up on it, and it's becoming viral pretty quickly how popular this selfless foul mouthed homeless surfer has become.
tl;dr - Just watch the video and enjoy the awesomeness. "I can't call it."
