HELL'S KITCHEN, Manhattan — A driver was arrested Saturday after plowing into a bicycle thief and a pedestrian in Midtown while driving the wrong way, police sources said.
It started at around 5 p.m. when a man stole James Mansfield's high-end bi ke after it was loaded into a van on West 50th Street near 8th Avenue, police said.
Mansfield, 47, chased after the man in his van — driving west on an eastbound street — and struck the bicycle thief and a 31-year-old pedestrian on 9th Avenue.
The pedestrian suffered minor cuts and the bicycle thief fled on foot, police said.
Mansfield faces reckless endangerment charges.
