    Things go downhill fast for cyclist arrested in Fort Worth

    A 23-year-old bicyclist rode right into trouble this week after making an apparent smart-aleck remark.

    According to a report, a police officer had detained five people on a curb after a traffic stop in the 3900 block of White Settlement Road when the cyclist rode by them about 11:45 p.m. Tuesday.

    "Did yíall read them their rights first?" the cyclist said loudly as he pedaled past.

    The remark drew the attention of the officer, who called for the cyclist to stop. "You donít have a headlight on that bike," the officer said, according to the report.

    Riding a bicycle without a headlight at night violates the Texas Transportation Code, the report states.

    Things continued downhill when the cyclist ignored the officer and kept pedaling, prompting another officer to turn on his patrol carís lights and chase the cyclist, the report states. Soon, another officer joined the pursuit.

    The cyclist looked back at the pursuing officer, pedaled faster, hopped a curb, and rode through several driveways and yards. He stopped in the 3900 block of Monticello Drive, took off his backpack, threw his bike down and asked officers, "Why are yíall stopping me?"

    The man was arrested on suspicion of evading arrest/detention.

    But his troubles werenít over.

    According to the report, officers spotted the handle of a Glock pistol protruding from a mesh pocket on the manís backpack. According to the report, the man has a concealed-handgun license. But because the gun was not concealed, he was also arrested on suspicion of unlawfully carrying a weapon by a license holder.

    He was charged with both misdemeanors Thursday, court records show.

    Right now OC is not allowed. There is a push under way to get it.

    Wow, I thought TX was pretty friendly towards guns. That's a shocker to me.
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]In order to rally people, governments need enemies. They want us to be afraid, to hate, so we will rally behind them. And if they don't have a real enemy, they'll invent one in order to mobilize us.
