President Obama was in town briefly yesterday to slow jam the news with Jimmy Fallon and take photos with Madonna, causing plenty of traffic delays and gridlock in Midtown Manhattan. But a presidential motorcade wasn't enough to deter one intrepid Citi Biker, who attempted to circumvent the street closures and got taken down pretty hard for his troubles.
Cops confirmed that the 59-year-old man, whose name wasn't released, was "stopped and detained" by cops at 50th Street and Park Avenue around 6:20 p.m. Wednesday. He was issued a summons for disorderly conduct.
Sure, cops probably could have stood in front of him to prevent him from getting any further (he doesn't appear to be biking very quickly in the video above), but where would the fun have been in that?!
This is what happens when an unstoppable #deblasiosny meets an immovable #thanksobama.
