WATCH: NYC Cops Arrest Man For Berating Sidewalk Bicyclist, Getting on Cops' Nerves

Drama!!!!! This happened in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn yesterday. Per the video description: "We were enjoying the nice spring weather from our balcony. A friend was visiting on his bike, and he rode up on the sidewalk from the street to our front door. In NYC this is illegal. You are supposed to stop in the street, get off the bike and walk it on the sidewalk. Although he was merely coming from the street up to our front door, those few second were illegal. NYPD rolls up and tickets him for this ($150 fine or appear in court!). Meanwhile our neighbor walks by while this scene is unfolding. They exchange some banter. We all laughed. He keeps walking. From there everything escalates... Seems completely unnecessary to me...At the end of the day, he was charged with harassment, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Welcome to an afternoon with the NYPD." The man was arrested for interfering with police business. So, the moral of this story: Mind your business and, oh, yes, watch what you say!
