Update: The second (non-bike-lock-throwing) bicyclist in the photo has contacted The Oregonian/OregonLive with his version of what happened. Read it below. 
Dear Portland bicyclists: Bike locks are for locking up your ride, not hucking at cars during the evening commute.  
A Portland woman says she has filed a police report against a bicyclist who she says threw a bike lock at her car and kicked her in the arm during a heated exchange east of the Hawthorne Bridge on Tuesday night.
Janet Lee said her teenage daughter was driving their 2000 BMW when she snapped a photo of the cyclist heaving the heavy U-lock at the vehicle.
