A cyclist who broke an elderly motorist in the face and broke his jaw has been let off without punishment after the magistrate found he had been provoked by the man.
Matthew David File, 47, was acquitted of assaulting retired great grandfather Graeme Gibb, 77, during a fiery confrontation in a Gold Coast car park last year.
Mr File and a friend were on a morning ride in August last year when they were almost run off the road by Gibb as he drove past them in his 1983 black Pontiac Firebird Trans Am.
Gibb stopped in the car park of Miami Hotel where he got out of his car to confront the cyclists.
Bike camera footage of the incident and the heated exchange that followed was played in court on Thursday.
