Man biking on Philly highway during morning rush taken into custody

6ABC reports the ordeal happened Friday around 8:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-76.

A reporter with the TV station was on her way to work and saw the man riding between the left and center lanes of the a major thoroughfare, cutting through the center of Philadelphia.

Traffic in the left two lanes was backed up as drivers tried to avoid him. Troopers eventually caught up with him.
