While riding home from a bar last night, I wasn't drunk by any means, just a little tippsy. I stopped at a light and had one of those 0mph falls. Not at all related to the beers. A cop saw it and kinda laughed a little. Then he turned the lights on and told me to get on the sidewalk. He asked if I was drinking. I said yeah, but only a few. He then gave me a breathalyzer and I blew a .09. .08 is the limit here in PA. After getting on his radio and what seemed like forever looking up my info he came back and said he was gonna give me a citation for public drunkenness since he rally can't give me a DUI since I was on a bike. Public drunkenness? I've ridden many times way more wasted then last night. Would he rather me drive my car home? What if I fell while walking, would I be the same?
Sorry about the rant. Just needed to *****. Cops here in Hanover have nothing better to do. He even gave me crap for not wearing a helmet. We have no such helmet laws, even for motorcycles. I hate ****ing police.
