[Gordon] said he fled the scene to avoid making an already bad situation worse and said he believed the altercation was a mutual one.

Mutual? :rotfl:​

Redelsperger alleged the attack was unprovoked and preceded by the racial rant, "I hate white people like you. I hope you all die."

Unprovoked seems unlikely. Maybe the provocation was minimal, but unless Gordon is criminally insane, middle aged men typically do not just walk around making unprovoked attacks on other human beings.

In his own deposition, Gordon acknowledged telling Redelsperger, "White people like you are my problem" but said the issue had nothing to do with race.

He accused Redelsperger of starting the conflict by glaring at him in the parking lot, prompting Gordon to glare back.

"It was like a childhood staring contest," Gordon said in the deposition.

He claimed Redelsperger then walked directly toward him, getting in his personal space, within a few inches of touching him.

"And he said in a very harsh, paternalistic tone, 'What's your problem,' " Gordon said in the deposition. "I said that it was people like him that was my problem. And it escalated from there."

Gordon's version seems more likely. This obviously does not justify the attack, but I doubt the pharmacist was so innocent and naive as he is pretending to be.

Redelsperger said he sued Gordon because he was upset over the light sentence he received through the criminal justice system. He said he believed Gordon was being protected because of his career and that charges were only filed against Gordon nine months after the assault because he pressured officials.

Court records show Gordon pleaded guilty in August 2015 to assault with bodily injury, a Class A misdemeanor, in exchange for 18 months of deferred adjudication probation.

"He never had to check in with the probation officer," Butcher said. "He took an anger management class that lasted a couple of hours one day. He didn't even do 30 minutes of jail time."

The case was dismissed in February after Gordon successfully completed his probation, meaning a conviction won't show up on his record.
