  1. Shady? LOL. If he ever is the defendant in a criminal or civil trial he better hope the DA doesn’t ask for character witness testimony from people he’s interacted with over the last 30 years. I remember during a parade about 22 years ago some kids(10-12yo) threw some candy at the antique bike he was riding, so he rolled up and angrily threatened to beat their asses. At the time this guy owned and ran a bike shop in that same small Iowa town. Eventually he was so hated he had to leave town and just do his antique stuff. Shady? Probably. Ethical and thoughtful? Well……threatening face to face to beat up a couple kids for throwing some candy at him…..ummm…..let’s go with a no on that one…..
