Florida Bicyclist Arrested on DUI Charge

Tampa DUI Lawyer

Bicyclists have equal rights to the road and must observe the same rules as other motorists because bicyclists are drivers under the eyes of the law. This also means that a charge of drunk driving can apply to bicyclists as well. A 54-year-old bicyclist from Flagler Beach discovered this on Sunday, May 25.

According to the report, it was past 10:00 p.m. and this man was just a couple of blocks away from his home. Unfortunately, he didn't have a light mounted on his bike, which is against the law. A deputy saw this, and also noted that the bicyclist had red, glazed eyes. The officer stopped him and said alcohol was detected on the man's breath. The man volunteered that he was returning home from a bar, and he is also reported to have wobbled as he spoke. He failed a field sobriety test and was arrested for DUI. Once at Flagler County Jail, he failed two Breathalyzer tests, which yielded .192 and .187 results, well above the legal blood alcohol level of .08. The man was released from police custody on his own recognizance.

This represents only one of many DUI arrests over the Memorial Day weekend. If you or someone you know faces DUI charges, then more than ever you need to be aware of your legal rights, your available protections. You further need to work with a skilled legal advocate, as you face:

  • Time in jail
  • Hundreds if not thousands of dollars in fines, and
  • A lifelong criminal record.
