Authorities in two jurisdictions are trying to sort out custody of a New Jersey man already facing charges in New Milford who was stopped in Key Largo, Florida for erratic bicycle riding.
Richard Scrivani, 23, of Little Ferry was seen riding his bike erratically in the middle of the highway at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning, according to authorities.
New Milford Patch reports that the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said Scrivani could not explain what he was doing or give any identification. He actually gave Deputy Matthew O’Neill a false name.
Scrivani tried to run away, but fell, and refused to stay down when ordered to by O’Neill. A taser did not affect Scrivani due to his jacket, and he began to fight O’Neill. Scrivani was finally taken in with the help of backup.
