Cities and towns create bike lanes to keep cyclists safely out of the way of motorized traffic. But in most areas the bikes who use these lanes are more than happy to share with joggers, who also want to stay out of harm's way.

But joggers in Chandler, Ariz., may now think twice about trekking along within the white lines of the bike lane after Karl "Jack" Frost's "citizen's arrest" made headlines Monday.

According to Frost, an alleged push from the jogger led to a take down by "reasonable force" by Frost. But police didn't see it Frost's way and he was arrested for assault and unlawful imprisonment. Oh, and there was also that gun he had concealed in his waistband.

Watch the video here - and next time you're out riding be sure to leave the Glock at home.
