update on new york/ you tube cyclist....
Didn't see this posted anywhere else on the board and I'm not quite sure where it would go but thought folks might be interested in the little update.
NEW YORK - A judge dismissed charges Friday against the bicyclist who was body-checked and knocked to the pavement by a police officer in a widely viewed YouTube video.
At the prosecution's request, Criminal Court Judge James Burke dropped a charge of resisting arrest against Christopher Long, 29, of Hoboken, N.J.
Long was arrested July 25 during a Critical Mass bicycle ride through Times Square. The monthly bike rides are held around the world to draw attention to alternatives to motor vehicles.
Police said Long was arrested because he was obstructing traffic and deliberately steered his bicycle into an officer.
