Photos.comBicyclist on Haight Street allegedly blasts through stop sign in front of cop.

This bicyclist had need for all kinds of speed.

A man “with a sense of entitlement” sped through a stop sign on his bicycle without slowing down at Haight and Pierce streets about 12:40 p.m. Saturday, Park Station Capt. Greg Corrales said.

A cop saw the violation, stopped the bicyclist, and, after learning he was wanted on a felony warrant, searched him and allegedly found methamphetamine and crack cocaine.

The “menace to public safety” was arrested, Corrales said.
