Robins Williams pulled over for riding on sidewalk

Robin Williams pulled over for riding his bike on sidewalk

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.
