If I ran like "Baby" from Baby Driver in a public place, would I be put under arrest?

Asked by edgarhamn89 (10points) August 18th, 2019

I am referring to this scene in the 2017 film “Baby Driver”: (robbery goes awry and Baby runs to avoid law enforcement)

Ever since I saw this scene back in 2017, it motivated me to run and run while tuned to the song playing in the background (Focus – Hocus Pocus). The feeling of being chased is just perfect for running.

This may sound idiotic, but I always had the urge deep within me to run like this in a public place (I live in California). Obviously, minus the crime (stealing, etc.)... just pure running and acting like I’m being chased. Would I be arrested?

Some people consider it a sport.

Do you happen to be brown? That might change the dynamic.

I have run through the streets of Manhattan, sometimes in similar but less dramatic fashion, up steps, up ramps, along the Highline. But I don’t run over tables and the maneuvering around obstacles is mostly to avoid pedestrians.

I have run in the streets of Chinatown and Little Italy, because the sidewalks are too crowded. But one has to watch for cars, they really don’t give a rat’s ass if you are running.

The most dangerous part is running across the Brooklyn Bridge: too many pedestrians, and the cyclists don’t slow down if you venture into the bike lane.

Not if you run with the runners group in your city as most run in the wee hours before traffic etc
