Motorcyclist Seen on Highway in Panda Costume: 'So Many Questions'
The rider was spotted in the costume two separate times, according to Minnesota State Police.
Minnesota State Police are looking for answers in the bizarre case of a motorcyclist they say has been spotted not once but twice, cruising through traffic in a panda costume.
Authorities said in a Facebook post this week that the oddball rider was first spotted on Highway 101 earlier this summer by a concerned motorist who called 911.
"Rightfully so, they were concerned about the person’s vision being obstructed and worried because the rider was weaving through traffic and riding no-handed," police wrote.
According to the statement, the bike exited the freeway before a trooper could locate it.
Later this summer, on Aug. 31, troopers say the same rider was observed in the costume. The driver was cited for reckless driving and the panda head was confiscated after he reportedly told them he wanted his riding videos to go “viral.”
But that explanation didn't totally satisfy police, who wrote:
