Outlaw on a Schwinn

Ricky Martin of Fremont, CA ran a red light while riding his Schwinn bicycle.

Motorcycle Officer Daniel Harvey stopped Ricky, but then Ricky fled, trying to outrun the police Harley Davidson. The two "went in circles, went over center dividers and up on sidewalks," according to this Chronicle article. Unlike the mythical Outlaw in lycra, Ricky didn't get away from the law. He spent the night in the pokey for resisting arrest.

Learn something every day - I've never heard of jail referred to as the "pokey". Maybe it's a Fritz-ism.

First definition in the American Heritage Dictionary for pokey says, "A jail or prison."
