Journo Admits to Bonehead Act

DCist’s Martin Austermuhle was full of humble pie this morning after getting hollered at by a cop. He wrote on Twitter, “I mistakenly rolled through a red light today and got called on it by a traffic officer. He was right, I’m a moron. #cyclistpenance”

Austermuhle was riding his bike on 14th and K and heading south. “Traffic leading east-west along K Street got the red, so I started rolling through the intersection until I realized that the opposing side had a left-hand turn green, while we were still red,” he explained to FishbowlDC. “Oops. A traffic cop yelled at me, and rightfully so. I’m a firm believer in admitting when I do boneheaded things like that.”
