New York - Authorities say a bicyclist tackled by a New York City police officer as President Barack Obama’s motorcade approached has received a summons for disorderly conduct.

NBC New York (http://bit.ly/25OHX0w  ) reports that officers shouted and signaled for the bicyclist to stop at around 6 p.m. Wednesday in Manhattan.

He kept going. Video shows an officer knocking the man to the ground. Another officer rolled him face-down onto the pavement and handcuffed him.

Seconds later, onlookers on the opposite side of the street waved at the president and cheered as he passed.

Obama was in the city to tape “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

There was a very rude bicyclist at the Israeli Day Parade on Sunday who drove over a pedestrian's foot and broke a police line. He was not apprehended... they let him go. So, some bicyclists are very aggresive and don't think they have to comply with rules. Here , the secret service took him out.
