Writes the Associated Press: "A television news cameraman paid a $145 fine after police said he enticed three teenagers to ride their bikes through waist-high floodwaters."The Cleveland Plain Dealer offers more from the police report:
A female reporter not identified in the police report waded into the water so the boys would be riding behind her in the video, the report said. An arriving officer witnessed the boys struggling to pedal through the water. Two adults confirmed the boys' stories, the report said. Abrahamsen denied the event, the report said.Abrahamsen told the Plain Dealer that he pleaded no contest because the fine was cheaper than contesting the charge.
