Arrested After Riding Bike the Wrong Way

He was arrested, placed in handcuffs and charged with disorderly conduct after failing to cooperate with the officers. “He got belligerent and began arguing with the officers,” Detective Annette Markowski told TIME.
Alec posted about the incident on Twitter, writing that New York officials were “desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign.”
