Cyclist stopped by police for wearing 'distracting' outfit

A Dutch tourist in New York, Jasmijn Rijcken, says she was pulled over by a NYPD officer for flashing too much skin while on two wheels.

"He said it's very disturbing, and it's distracting the cars and it's dangerous," Rijcken said. "I thought he was joking around but he got angry and asked me for ID."

Rijcken, 31, was not given a ticket during the May 3 incident, and did not get the officer's name, but was left feeling baffled.

"I didn't even think for one second that my outfit could be harmful or disturbing," she said.
