[London Community News] A cyclist stopped by London police for running red light is facing several drug and weapons charges.
According to the London Police Service (LPS) two members of the Community Foot Patrol Unit saw a man ride his bike through a red light at the intersection of Dundas and William streets at about 5:50 p.m. Tuesday (Oct. 15).
While the officers were speaking with the man, they learned he had a spring-loaded knife on his person. Once he was arrested, the officers discovered he also had almost six grams of marijuana and trace amounts of crystal meth on his person.
Further investigation revealed the bike he was riding was reported stolen Sept. 20.
I love this dude. From now on I’m just going to point to him when people ask if maybe I’m overreacting to the whole bicyclist menace. Because this guy is just an absolute perfect storm of everything I hate about bicyclists. I feel like a broken record saying it sometimes, but if you support bicyclists, you also support drug trafficking, theft, and assault with a deadly weapon. It’s just a fact.
Listen I don’t really care about pot. Shouldn’t even be illegal as far as I’m concerned. Still, I’m pretty sure that if I was rolling around with pot and crystal meth on my person, I’d be the most law-abiding dude in the world. But again, that’s the whole bicyclist mentality. They think that the moment they sit their spandex-clad asses down on a bike seat, they are immune to all laws. Concealed weapons laws? Drug laws? Basic traffic laws? PROPERTY laws? Fuck no! I love it. I’ve never seen a dude who more perfectly captures what the bicycling community is all about.
PS. If your bike is so easy to steal that even a crystal meth tweaker can do it, you might want to invest in a new bike lock. But I guess that’s the typical bicyclist mentality too. They disregard every law in the book with reckless abandon, but when someone steals their unlocked bike right off the street they straight up cannot believe it.
PPS. Get your shit together, England. This is three posts in a row.Follow @footstepsfaIco
