    Robin Williams had a run-in with the law recently when he was caught riding his bicycle on a New York City street but that's not the shocking part. Apparently the comedian, starring in Broadway's "Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo," was dressed as a "terrorist or a crack dealer" when he was pulled over by police.

    As he told it to the ladies on "The View," he was cruising down the sidewalk on a one-speed track bike wearing a balaclava (a.k.a., a mask) and looking like a "terrorist or crack dealer."

    Williams heard a "whoop, whoop" and "pull over." Once officers checked his ID and he pulled down the mask, they let him go with just a warning.

    "I got hit by a bike on a sidewalk," Elizabeth Hasselbeck piped up during the story.

    Williams poked back: "Well, then that's why. It is the law because of her."

    The takeaway? Not every scary dude on a bike is a crack dealer or a terrorist he could be Robin Williams.
    I guess if it was you or I, we would have gotten a ticket.........What was he thinking riding on a sidewalk anyway?

    It figures that Hasselbeck would be hit by a bicyclist.

    Wasn't she the one that was hit while hailing a cab? As we all know, people always hail cabs exclusively from the curbed confines of a sidewalk.

    Robin Williams story

    Thanks for sharing that!

    Years ago, my friend helped Williams in a Manhattan bike store and said he is a real nice guy.

    Maybe, we can get Robin to show up for the Critical Mass rides.

    One time I watched a movie starring Robin Williams. I enjoyed it.
