I've Been Through The Desert On A Bike With No Shame

Glendale, CA

A man's gotta have wheels out here. That's the law of the land. You got no wheels, you got no life. So, you gotta jack some sweet ride to get around town, that's what you do.

And if the only wheels are a ten-year-old's pink Huffy, well... I suppose that's okay, too.

Michael Toplin, 31, just released from County lockup and on parole for receiving stolen property, was picked up last Wednesday when police spotted him... standing out, you might say.

He's 5'11" and cops saw him riding a young girl's pink bicycle, which had been reported stolen from a nearby apartment complex about ten minutes before. Seems Mr. Toplin just needed some transport.

On the plus side he was still wearing his inmate jumpsuit so he wouldn't have to change when they booked him. How very considerate of him.
