Easy Rider

Larry R., of Baltimore, Md., learned the hard way that it's even illegal to wear headphones on a bicycle. It didn't help that he also decided to run a red light. Turns out, the cop car was right behind him. And the officer had to pull in front of Larry -- lights blazing, sirens wailing -- to get his attention because the music was cranked to full volume in the headphones. At the time, Larry was a struggling college student. What did he have to sell to pay the tickets? You guessed it -- the portable radio and headphones.
