Philadelphia motorcyclist who kicked in woman's windshield with kids in car in viral video pleads guilty

 A Philadelphia motorcyclist who was captured in a viral video kicking the rear windshield of a woman's car and pointing a gun at her head pleaded guilty Wednesday.

Cody Herron, 26, pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault and possession of instruments of crime in connection with the Oct. 1 attack, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said.

The District Attorney's Office said additional details about Herron's guilty plea will be released Thursday, FOX29 Philadelphia reports.

The attack happened around 9 pm. on Oct. 1 when a group of ATV and dirt bike riders gathered in the area around City Hall in the 1400 block of South Penn Square in the Center City neighborhood, Philadelphia police say.

While stopped at a red light, the driver of an ATV and the driver of a red sedan, identified as 23-year-old Nikki Bullock, appeared to be involved in a verbal altercation.

The video shows the suspect, who was stopped directly behind the ATV, get off his motorcycle and jump into the back of Bullock's car and kick the rear windshield.

When Bullock confronted him, the suspect picked up a black handgun that had fallen from his waistband and pointed it at the victim, police said. As the suspect was walking back to his motorcycle, he was seen head-butting and pushing the bull before fleeing at high speed, officials said.

Heron was arrested and charged after police found Heron and the motorcycle at his home in the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia a few days after the incident.
