DOES A PERSON NOT HAVE THE SAME RIGHT TO USE THE PATH AS THE BICYCLIST? SHE WAS NOT THREATENED. IF THE WALKER WAS ACTING SUSPICIOUSLY THEN IT OUGHT TO HAVE BEEN REPORTED. CAN'T A PERSON TAKE A WALK ANYMORE?!

I totally agree Meg McElroy !! Its kind of asinine & a total waste of time for our police. Almost every week, there are always a few ridiculous calls that people make. I remember reading last summer that a woman was rollerblading while pushing a stroller, with a child in it, and someone called in to report her that she was endangering her children...
