The man is reportedly a legal observer for the National Lawyers’ Guild. C.S. Muncy also snapped some photos of the incident for the Voice:
After being run over, the man was arrested and hospitalized. He is apparently being charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, obstruction of governmental administration, and two counts of criminal mischief, according to Gothamist.
Update 5:34 p.m.: Questions have been raised about the authenticity of the incident. A photographer for the Daily News says that the man, who’s been identified as Ari Douglas, staged the whole thing, putting his legs under the bike even though it didn’t actually run over him. Who knows!
