Even comedian Robin Williams isn't immune from getting stopped by cops when he's riding a bike on a New York sidewalk.

And it was no laughing matter.

During his appearance on the ABC estrogen-filled gabfest "The View" this morning, Williams told a story about how he recently became one of many cyclists stopped by police for riding on the sidewalk.

"I got hit by a bike on a sidewalk!" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck said.

"Well, it's the law because of her," Williams barked back.

"[I was dressed] like a terrorist or a crack dealer, your call. No one was on the sidewalk, and all of a sudden woop-woop," Williams added.

At first, Williams said the cops didn't recognize him -- but once they did, he was promptly let go with a warning.
