CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) _ Authorities say a drug suspect's attempt to avoid being arrested ended when he crashed his bicycle into the back of a police car parked along a central New York street.
The Cortland County Sheriff's Office tells The Post-Standard of Syracuse that deputies spotted 46-year-old Miles Parrotta of Cortland riding a bike on a sidewalk in his hometown Tuesday.
When a deputy tried to stop him, Parrotta fled on his bike across four lanes of traffic. Officials say his getaway attempt ended soon after when he crashed into the back of a parked police car.
He was charged with unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine, failure to comply with police and improper operation of a bicycle.
Parrotta is being held in the county jail without bail.
