The son of the late Eric Garner was arrested for allegedly stealing a Citi Bike on Tuesday evening, The New York Daily News reports.

Emery Snipes was stopped by NYPD officers for riding the bike against traffic and entering a park after dark in lower Manhattan. The 16-year-old was then unable to provide officers with a receipt for the rented bike. Citi Bike is a sharing system that allows residents to ride bicycles throughout the city and surrounding boroughs.

Snipes was issued two summons: one for riding the bike against traffic, and the other for being present in a city park after dusk. He was also given one day of community service. A judge informed the teen he could avoid charges if he stays out of trouble for six months.

Snipes’ father was killed by a police officer in July 2014 after being placed in an illegal chokehold. Protests and outcry spread throughout the nation after the incident was recorded on a pedestrian’s cell phone. Charges were not brought against the officer involved.
