Skateboarder arrested after sticking up middle finger at police

Syracuse police arrested a man on a skateboard yesterday after he gave them the middle finger while riding down Cannon Street.

24 year-old Marquin Hicks was arrested just after noon on Wednesday when police say he rode by a marked police car and stuck up both his middle fingers at the car.

Police say Hicks violated section 16-14.1 (3) of the city ordinance policy by interfering with traffic in the street.

The policy section says skateboards must be "operated in a careful and prudent manner, and not... cause interference with the proper use of any public way."

Hicks is scheduled to appear in city court on Thursday.
