A cyclist has been charged with careless driving after a video a posted on Instagram showed a male riding carelessly down Yonge St. He’s on a mountain bike doing wheelies while weaving between cars, riding on the wrong side of the road and sidewalk, and running a red light.
The video originally posted by My Little Bike Shop’s Instagram account on June 22 and caught the attention of the police, who posted the footage on their own Instagram account in hopes of finding witnesses of the incident.
The Instagram account responded with, “It’s kind of heartbreaking to see my little poppa wheelie clip being posted on the Toronto Police Instagram account,” the June 30 Instagram post said. “I say heartbreaking because my video is surrounded by surveillance videos of murders, stabbings, shootings, robberies and sexual assaults. I never crashed, I never hit anyone, and didn’t commit any sort of hit & run.”
Yesterday, police charged a 28-year-old man with careless driving in the June 17 incident.
