From the Denver Post

A professional bicyclist who fired a handgun as he rode through a residential area in Jefferson County in February said he unloosed the shots because he was having a rough day and needed to vent, according to a Jefferson County Sheriff’s report of the incident.

A deputy who issued Daniel Summerhill, 28, a member of United Healthcare Pro Cycling Team, a summons, found at least three spent rounds each about 50 yards apart, after responding to a report of shots fired on South Deer Creek Road.

Contacted on Tuesday morning, Summerhill said he wasn’t guilty, but didn’t elaborate.
