NY Man Drives Dirt Bike Through Price Chopper
It happened at the beginning of September.
According to News 10, 23 year old Traitin Knight, of Schenectady, was arrested on Monday for allegedly driving a stolen dirt bike through the aisles of a local Price Chopper, located in the Eastern Avenue Price Chopper in the Albany area.
Police say the alleged incident happened back on September 1st but they weren't able to track the man down until Monday and after being arrested, he was released on $2,500 bail.
Police Sergeant Matt Dearing told News 10 that Knight recorded the entire video himself and it shows him speeding through the front doors of the store just missing a handful of people. It then shows him weaving through the aisles, and pulling a wheelie.
Knight was asked by News10 how he felt about the incident and he said, "Subscribe to my YouTube channel and make sure you like my videos and yeah that's it. Nobody died. Nobody got hurt.”
After bailing her son out, Knight's mom said that all she knew was that it was a challenge on social media that he was trying to do and that it had gone viral but didn't think he would actually do it. She also said, “If you go on his YouTube it's all pranks jokes you know this one was a little bit too much."
Knight is now facing a bunch of charges including reckless endangerment and possession of stolen property.
