NEW YORK — A Chinese food deliveryman trying to bring an order to a Manhattan address got lost, and ended up riding his electric-powered bicycle into oncoming traffic at the Holland Tunnel before he was arrested, officials and reports said Friday.
Yongshun Bu, 44, piloted the bike around traffic coming from Jersey City, ignoring signs and instructions to stop Thursday night, according to Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo.
Workers noticed the wayward biker and waved their hands to stop him, a source told The New York Post. Bu, however, was undeterred.
Officials slowed traffic on the New Jersey side before Port Authority Police officer Eric Brozek caught up to Bu about 100 yards into the tube, according to the newspaper. Police deployed a dog to sniff for explosives as a precaution after the incident.
The spokesman said Bu was charged with criminal trespass.
