UPI News Service, 06/12/2011 

A Dutch tourist said a New York cop pulled her over for riding her bike around the city in an outfit deemed "distracting" and "dangerous."

Jasmijn Rijcken, 31, was in New York to attend the New Amsterdam Bike Show and as a general manager of a bicycle company in the Netherlands, she thought she'd take advantage of a sunny May 3 day to go cycling in the city, the New York Daily News reported Sunday.

Rijcken alleges she was pulled over by a New York police officer for showing too much skin while on two wheels.

She was allegedly wearing a skirt with short boots, the Daily News said.

"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."

She said she was not ticketed and did not get the officer's name.

"I was on my way back to the hotel when it happened and I changed into pants," Rijcken said. "I didn't want to get into trouble again."

NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne could not verify the story.

"Whether this story bears even a modest semblance of what actually occurred is impossible to establish without being provided the purported officer's name and getting his side of the story," Browne said.
