A friend of the victim 63-year-old fisherman Michael Lawrence told reporters about how the accident occurred and both parties decided to hush up the case: “Scooby (the victim) was on his new bike when a car came out of nowhere. He doesn’t have anywhere to hide. He simply took the full force of the blow on his forearm that broke the mirror of a car. There was blood everywhere”.
Being shot down Michael felt a huge rush of adrenaline and rushed to slap the perpetrator of the incident. Only after hitting the “victim” knew who it was “stretched” face. “Scooby shook himself and, feeling a rush of adrenaline, reacted as could — hit him. Apparently everything was like in slow motion film. Scooby said that he almost had a heart attack when he realized that before him Benedict Cumberbatch,” admitted the other.
After that, both sides exchanged phone numbers, though Michael received no response that it really hurt. Despite this, the fisherman does not extend about the incident and is not talking to reporters. Suggest to the victim to recover money for the damage.
Prior to this, the actor has earned the reputation of a “hero”. Once on the streets of London on a courier was attacked by a gang of robbers, from which the employee of a delivery service saved himself Benedict Cumberbatch! At the time of the incident, Benedict was riding in a taxi on the street of Marylebone high street with his wife Sophie hunter. Then they saw that the cyclist hit four people. According to eyewitnesses, the actor didn’t hesitate and immediately ran out of the taxi shouting “Leave him alone!” By the way, all happened near Baker street, 221b — the address of the London home of Sherlock Holmes.
“It all looked a bit surreal. Sherlock Holmes, fend off four attackers around the corner from Baker street. They tried to hit him, but he defended himself and pushed them. He was not injured. I think they learned that it was Benedict, and ran away. Then the actor helped the victim of robbers to climb and asked him how he feels. And when he replied that right, Benedict just hugged him. Don’t know what would have happened to this guy, if not for Benedict. He’s a real superhero!” — said the taxi driver.
