He wanted food, and to sell liquor.
The 38-year-old rode up on a mountain bike and asked two men sitting out front of a Fife motel on Saturday if they could spare money to feed him. The men said they had nothing to offer.
The bike rider then tried to sell them a bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey. Since the men already had beers and were trying to enjoy the sunshine, they declined and asked to be left alone.
That’s when the hungry biker got mad. He threatened to shoot the men and reached behind his back. One of the men grabbed his cell phone and dialed 911.
The biker rode away.
When officers stopped him nearby, he said “the victims were lying and that he had only asked the victims how much the motel room cost,” according to charging papers.
The man pleaded not guilty to attempted second-degree robbery and was ordered jailed in lieu of $150,000.
