SCHENECTADY, New York — He’s a full-throttle idiot.
Police have charged a stunt-riding motorcyclist who sped through an Upstate New York supermarket on a dirt bike with reckless endangerment.
Traitin Knight, 23, narrowly avoided running down several startled customers at a Price Chopper in Schenectady on Sept. 1, all while filming his joy ride with a GoPro camera affixed to his helmet.
He later posted the 66-second video — titled “Grocery shopping on a dirt bike!!” — on his YouTube channel and on Facebook. That got the attention of police.
“In the original video, there are multiple victims seen as Mr. Knight recklessly rides through the grocery store with blatant disregard for customer safety,” police said in a statement.
The video begins with Knight revving the motor of the bike in the supermarket parking lot and then making his way through the automatic door, squeezing by a customer as he made his way inside.
He then zips around an aisle and past the produce section, narrowly avoiding running down several customers.
In a statement to the Schenectady Daily Gazette, a Price Chopper spokeswoman said: “After having brought the incident and video to their attention, we’ve been working with the police on this case.”
Cops caught up with Knight earlier this week and are now asking any witnesses who were in and around the store that night, to contact them.
