This story made me realize I haven’t been using the “celebrity idiots” tag nearly enough.

I didn’t even realize “biking while a douchebag” was an available charge, but I guess it is in NYC:

The scene of the arrest must have been fun. “I’ll have your badges! All of you! I’LL HAVE YOUR BADGES!”

Question: If Alec Baldwin ever has to call NYPD for help in an emergency, how intentionally slow will the response be?

Baldwin might find that he’d have less trouble with the NYC cops if he’d stop making it so damn much fun for them.

Meanwhile, back at NYPD headquarters, the questioning of Baldwin is going as expected:


Baldwin seems to be one of those guys who never notices that the common denominator in all of his troubles is himself. For example, I don’t know at all what happened, but in general, how big of a jackass do you have to be to get yourself put in handcuffs for riding a bike the wrong way down the street?

    He's been going the wrong way for years.

    Doug – the video is priceless! It has already been reported that he had no ID with him and when he got to the police station – pulled that same crap – "Do you know who I am?" Still feel sorry for his two daughters – what an awful example for a parent.

    The spin will be that he's practicing for an upcoming role in the Jerk remake, or something…

    Incredibly ( 'Mister' Douchebag ) continues to make The Conservative Case. Cyclists want all the latitude you'd extend to a special needs 9 year old AND be provided equal protection under the law as a vehicle; whichever affords the most right of way/leeway they feel their situation warrants.

    If his argument is ( and certainly seems to be ) that The PET's ( Progressive Enforcement Tools ) have become power hungry tin pot dictators, we couldn't agree more.

    Lib celebs crack me up… they insist on the "everybody be treated the same" stuff and then when they get in trouble with the cops they pull the "don't you know who I am" card.

    No kidding. Reminds me back in 2005 (or about there) when the libs in WA ST played the raise the gas tax or the Alaska Way Viaduct is going to collapse. The voters voted to raise the gas tax an additional 9.5 cents and the very first project the money went to were bike lanes on I-90.

    More like a remake of Alice and Wonderland and Baldwin is going to play the Queen of Hearts…

    "I don't tell me I was riding my bike the wrong way. It is always your-my way and end with your majesty!"

    More magical thinking and and creation of paths [literally] to a Post-Industrial America. With taxpayers footing the bill every pedal of the way…

    Why I felt that goofy, 8th grade caliber joke of a 'study' showing an annual $400 mil. "contribution" to OR's economy snortworthy. Just think of all the money stimulating the economy if we all WALKED to our green non-job jobs?

    For the longest time we assumed their design ended at the Cycling Lobby ( cuzz' that's what it is ) mandating others pay for their pet projects/hobby. Now I'm not so sure? How else do you get a 9.5 cent gas hike prodded through?

    I kept pushing for an initiative in WA ST for bicycle licenses and annual license plate tags (just like a car). I argued that if they are going to use the roadways (and even have their own lanes) they ought to be footing the bill. I got great response on the East side of the state, but no one would touch it on the Western side.

    Timing is everything and tides are shifting. Was there anyone or group you were working with you could put me in touch with?

    Every week ( when inevitably ) some poor soccer mom kills a Critical Mass member, the comments under the story run 10-to-1 *against* the cyclo-lobby.

    Of course this is explained away in describing psychlo's as "having an active lifestyle vice shut-in's w/ no where to go but the internet". Yeah, right, never saw a sicklist w/ an IPhone…

    I wish I could have gotten any number of the groups attentions, but that was the problem they were all in Western Washington and feared the backlash. I can't say I blame them, they were trying to go for other big items, so they didn't want to piss off too many lobbies all at once.

    Ever get pulled over, and everything's fine until one of your jackass friends mouths off to the cop? I get the feeling Baldwin is that jackass…
