A woman walking in a crosswalk on Tremont Street with her sister Friday shortly after 6 p.m. was hit by Brunelle on his bike when he ran a red light, according to police reports released today. The woman was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with head injuries after, Brunelle claims, he flagged Chandler down to help him help her.“I was trying to get a taxi for her and this guy comes out and hits me and then he tries to run me over with his car,” Brunelle said. “I said, ‘We were on a group ride. Someone got an injury, they’ve got to go to the hospital.’ He started getting in my face and ‘expletive you’ and so I shot back and I said, ‘Expletive you.’ He gets out and he attacks me. He tried to run me over.”Chandler began punching Brunelle “with his fist, knocking him to the ground and continued the assault while Brunelle was on the ground,” court documents state.
