Man Jailed for Pennsylvania DUI on Bike

Jeffrey Burke was sentenced to 15 consecutive weekends in jail following a charge of driving under the influence in Montgomery County Pennsylvania. He was riding a bicycle at the time of his arrest.

Burke had attended a fireworks display on July 4th, 2007 in Narbeth, PA. As he cycled away from the festivities, he was involved in an accident with a car. Police responding to the scene determined that Burke had a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit for intoxication, and he was booked for drunk driving in Pennsylvania.

In handing down the sentence, the Montgomery County judge may have been influenced by the fact that Burke skipped his court hearing, thinking there was no offense of DUI while bicycling.
