An unidentified driver was arrested yesterday when he admitted to police that he "knocked out" some pedestrians after almost hitting them with his car. 

According to police reports, two men were walking at a crosswalk along the 4900 block of Third Street when a driver came to a short stop nearly hitting one of the pedestrians with his bumper.

According to police "the victim who was nearly hit tapped the suspect's hood with his hands and told him to calm down."

That enraged the driver who then hopped out of his car and punched the guy who had touched his hood. The victim fell to the ground. The driver then turned his anger on the second pedestrian and started beating him. Then he went back to the first victim and continued to punch and kick him until the cops arrived and broke it up.  

The driver was arrested and booked on battery charges.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
