CUMMING, Ga. — A man on a bicycle was caught violating several traffic laws and threated officers after being confronted, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

Emir Hornston, 27, was charged with failure to maintain lane and failure to yield. At about 8 p.m. May 20, officers saw Hornston riding through the intersection of Maple Street and Atlanta Road.

Officers said he was reaching out to grab a truck bed in front of him. He continued straight on Atlanta Road and took up the left lane. Officers said he then went straight onto Pilgrim Mill Road and caused a truck to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident.

Officers signaled for him to pull over, but he refused. After about a quarter of a mile, officers used the PA system and told him to stop. He finally pulled into the City Park’s Kiwanis Club parking lot.

Officers said when they confronted Hornston, he cussed and refused to provide identification. He eventually showed them a license out of Suwanee.

Hornston was taken to Cumming Police Department.
