Man in electric wheelchair chases woman for three days (?) (!)

A 67-year-old man is alleged to have knocked a woman off her bicycle with his electric wheelchair in a parking lot in Ft Pierce, Florida. He is alleged to have broken her bicycle.

This occurred, it is alleged, after he had chased the woman around the parking lot for three days before she called the cops or anyone noticed or he ran out of battery (the article is unclear on this score).

I don't understand this story.

Oh, wait. According to commenters on the story, it may be that, on three consecutive days, he chased the woman around this parking lot. On the third day, he caught her.

I still don't really understand.

Gray, who police said appeared "very intoxicated," denied doing anything. He then offered the woman money to repair the bike.

The affidavit didn't state what made investigators suspect Gray was intoxicated or what may have sparked the alleged electric wheelchair assault.

Witnesses said they saw Gray knock the victim from the bicycle before picking it up and slamming it down.

"It should be noted that Gray is not wheelchair bound, and he can walk for a short distance," the affidavit states.
