An attention-seeking costumed panda biker in Minnesota was ticketed for reckless
driving after he was stopped by state troopers while dressed as a panda.
Police had been on the lookout for the costumed biker, who was recorded earlier
this summer weaving in and out of traffic on Highway 101 by a concerned motorist.
On that occasion, he exited the highway before police could could locate him.
Traffic cameras captured the same rider on Interstate 394 in late August. Troopers
were able to pull over the driver, who told officers he wanted his riding videos to go
“viral.” Instead, he was ticketed and forced to hand over his panda head.
Police were not entirely amused. On its Facebook page, the Minnesota State Patrol
reminded motorists to “make sure you can see and be seen.”
