A 52-year-old East Tupper Street man was arrested as he tried to ride off on a bicycle he managed to unchain across Delaware Avenue from the Buffalo City Court Building about 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

Andrew A. Goodman was stopped as he tried to pedal off on the $300 bicycle which had been chained to a post until he allegedly used the wire cutter that was found on him when police arrived. Goodman was charged with criminal mischief, possession of burglar’s tools because of the wire cutter, and attempted petit larceny for trying to steal the bike and damaging the $50 lock which had been designed to secure the chain around it.
