Miniskirt-Wearing Cyclist Pulled Over by NYPD
Talk about hell on wheels!
Dutch bicycle company manager Jasmijn Rijcken claims she was beating the heat in a miniskirt on May 3 when she was pulled over by the NYPD for flashing a "disturbing" amount of skin, the New York Daily News reports.
Rijcken, who was in town for the New Amsterdam Bike Show, says she was approached by an officer who told her that her outfit was "very disturbing, and it's distracting the cars and it's dangerous."
"I thought he was joking around but he got angry and asked me for ID," the 31-year-old tells the paper. "I didn't even think for one second that my outfit could be harmful or disturbing. I was on my way back to the hotel when it happened and I changed into pants. I didn't want to get into trouble again."
The "leggy blonde" says she was let go without receiving a ticket, and did not catch the officer's name.
"Whether this story bears even a modest semblance of what actually occurred is impossible to establish without being provided the purported officer's name and getting his side of the story," NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne responded when questioned by the paper.
We may not know his name, but we do know this: He's never had his maxidress caught in a bike spoke.
Meanwhile, there's more bad news for miniskirt lovers: A recent study says they're a no-go for women over 35.
