Then Bialczak picked up the still-sparking powerline and aimed a kick at Edwards’ car door...
Funeral to be held Sunday.
“Then Bialczak picked up the still-sparking powerline and aimed another kick at Edwards’ car door...”

This whole story is absolutely shocking!
Either this guy had an extra bowl of Wheaties that morning (or PCP) or the victim's car "may" have not been in the very most roadworthy condition.
I wonder just how many automotive bumpers out there could indeed be “wrestled off” by a man in decent shape.
My first thought is "an aftermarket Smart Car accessory bumper"
“and then wrestled off the victim’s bumper.”
Not the bumpers on my Jeep.:)
Don’t forget he hit the car several times with his own car. He likely pulled off the plastic bumper cover and the writer of the story is not that bright. Heck my wife pulled off the plastic bumper of her car buy getting the bottom of it stuck on a curb.
PCP-Like Rodney King.
Bang Bang Bang,end of problem.
Here's another article about the incident that contradicts the sentence that says he was docile when the police got to the scene. It also says that Bialczak is an "D.C. attorney". It looks like he's an AC/DC attorney.
Montgomery Village PatchPolice: Downed Power Line Used in Post-Irene Attack
Defendant hurled death threats and sparking power line at man he had followed to Silver Spring, according to court records.

A D.C. attorney attacked a man with a live power linedowned by Hurricane Ireneduring an altercation in which the lawyer used his car as a battering ram against his alleged victim, police said.
Richard J. Bialczak, 32, of the 9000 block of Milestone Way in College Park, is charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, malicious destruction of property and two counts of reckless endangerment as a result of the Aug. 28 incident in Silver Spring.
Charging documents filed in Montgomery County District Court describe the following scenario the night after Hurricane Irene tore through the area:
Shortly before midnight on Sunday, Bialczak was in his 2005 Hyundai Accent, following a man for several blocks in Silver Spring.
The victim, afraid to go home, kept driving, but was forced to stop near Brewster Avenue's intersection with Worth Avenue, where the roadway was cordoned off for a power line downed during the hurricane.
In the ensuing confrontation, Bialczak threatened to kill the man and said that, "his boss told him to follow him." The man locked himself in his car and called 911. Meanwhile, Bialczak pulled at the door handle, kicked and punched the door and glass, then broke off the antenna and used it to lash the car repeatedly.
Bialczak then grabbed the downed power linewhich was still sparkingthrew it onto the hood of the car, got back in his Hyundai and slammed it several times into the front and drivers side of the victims vehicle.
When police arrived, Bialczak smelled of alcohol and refused to answer their questions. He was "extremely upset and not making sense when he spoke," Officer Paris Capalupo wrote in the charging documents.
Neighbors who saw the altercation described Bialczak as the aggressor and corroborated the alleged victims sequence of events.
At Bialczak's bail review hearing Monday in Montgomery County District Court, attorneys on both sides said they were still trying to piece together what happened.
Howard R. Cheris, Bialczak's attorney, said he works for a Washington, D.C. law firm and has no prior record.
"This is completely inconsistent with his life of good, law-abiding conduct," Charis said. " It seems fairly bizarre, but I just dont think were at the bottom of this."
Judge Stephen P. Johnson lowered Bialczak's bail from $200,000 to $50,000 and ordered him into alcohol treatment. A preliminary hearing is set for Sept. 23.
Note how his name could be easily perceived as “Dick Ballsack” ; probably been enraged his whole life and that’s why he drinks.
Shocked no one else made mention of it
Shoulda left ZOTting to the professionals.
I'm sure we're just talking about the bumper skin. Since the victim's vehicle had been repeatedly rammed. The skin was probably already dangling with just a few weak screws holding the remainer of it to the vehicle.
