Former mayoral candidate Paul Tay has been arrested again. Tay has been a lightning rod for controversy lately for riding his bicycle around Tulsa with a giant, inflated penis on the back. Tulsa Police can't arrest him for that because of freedom of speech issues.

However, they say when a driver swerved toward Tay's bicycle, Tay threw a bottle at the driver's windshield, breaking it. Throwing something at a moving vehicle is a felony.

It's also a felony to wear body armor while committing a felony, so Tay was arrested for that as well, since he was wearing a bulletproof vest. He's in the Tulsa County jail.
