3 arrests, 47 tickets at NY Critical Mass

Critical Mass, NYC, 3-30

Newsday | Critical Mass ride interrupted

Three riders were arrested during Friday night’s Critical Mass ride in New York City. Two were charged with disorderly conduct and “obstructing governmental administration.” Newsday was unable to discover charges against the third rider at press time.

“What this is all about is the police department trying to get Critical Mass,” said Norman Siegel, the former head of the New York Civil Liberties Union who represents the Five Borough Bicycle Club, which sought to block the NYPD’s new rule in federal court this week.

About 50 riders were ticketed, some for traffic offenses.
