too much love for his bike?

This guy just loved his bike a little too much, or did he?

Under the provisions of "Mercian's Law" he is now prohibited from living within 1000 feet of a bicycle store, bike rack, bike path, or any place where bicycles might congregate.

"Stewart had denied the offence, claiming it was caused by a misunderstanding after he had too much to drink."

I'd love to hear his explanation...

Yes, I find more disturbing the fact that he was sentenced and put on a sexual offenders list for that, I mean WTF, he was just privately loving his bike, probably had just installed a new king headset or something and found it irresistible

There was a young man from Ayr
Who did it because of a dare
The causes of pain
Were the brakes and the chain
And the judge who just didn't care.

All kidding aside, I'd be considering a lawsuit if I ended up on a list of that nature because of what someone saw me doing with a bicycle in the privacy of my home. No, I wouldn't want to hang out with the dude, but I don't see the connection between his actions and those of serious sex offenders.
