German police have apologised to a one-armed cyclist after they pulled him over and fined him for riding one-handed.
Bogdan Ionescu was travelling through Cologne city centre when he was stopped by overzealous officer who told him he was riding dangerously.
Upon realising Mr Ionescu was missing an arm, the overzealous officer turned his attention to the customised bicycle, fining him €25 for having adapted his brakes to work off a single lever – despite the fact doing so was perfectly legal.
“Jurisdiction? We don’ need no stinkin’ jurisdiction,” GPDFolks told FWIW when reached overseas, where he’s been enjoying the Germans’ more relaxed attitude towards nude sunbathing in public parks. “The law’s the law, around the world. I just seen my opportunity and I took it.”
