Michigan cops arrest a youth for riding a bicycle then arrest his friend when he questions why, and threatens to arrest others if they "run their mouth."
Niles, MI — When the Niles skate park was built, according to some residents, the impression they got from the fundraisers put in place to help construct it, was that bicycles would be allowed. The town reportedly sold t-shirts with bikes on the front to help construct the skatepark. But after construction, somewhere along the way, bikers became an unwelcome presence at the town's skatepark — so police were called in.
Both Skateboarding and BMX biking are Olympic sports, and any town should be proud of having a teenage population desiring to pursue their sport, possibly even making it to the Olympics. But not Niles. Biking in the skatepark isn't wanted, and offenders are often given hundreds of dollars in tickets with one resident reporting saying he'd amassed nearly $700 in fines for skating and biking infractions.
