GLOVERSVILLE - A Brooklyn man's riding a bicycle against traffic on South Main Street led to officers detaining him because he was wanted by his parole officer in New York City, police said.
Raydell Robinson, 32, of 300 Mother Gaston Blvd., also was charged Friday shortly before 9 p.m. with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Police said Robinson was observed riding a bicycle in the wrong direction. Robinson was questioned, admitted to being on parole and said he had permission to be in the city, police said. When officers checked with his parole officer in New York City, police said, they learned Robinson did not have approval to be in Gloversville.
Police said the officers interviewing Robinson also discovered he had a crack cocaine pipe.
Robinson is being held in the Fulton County Correction Facility.
