Last Saturday in the Inner Richmond, San Francisco Police officers stopped a 39-year-old male suspect for the inexcusable crime of riding a bicycle on the sidewalk. As we've seen too many times in the past, the suspect's bad behavior was possibly fueled by the methamphetamine the cops found in his pocket.
The event occurred around 5 p.m. on March 16th, the Richmond Station newsletter reports, when two plainclothes cops spotted the suspect rolling down the sidewalk and peering into parked vehicles. Because no one over the age of 13 should be riding their bike on the sidewalk ever, the officers detained the man and asked if he had any weapons on him. When he confessed that he had a knife in his pocket, a baggie of meth fell out of his pocket.
The suspect was charged with a narcotics violation and he also had a couple outstanding warrants for his arrest. Anyhow, that's three sidewalk biking incidents involving meth. So we can officially declare this a trend.
