So a younger criminal defense attorney walks in my office and the following colloquy occurs:
Many of you are aware that it is illegal to drink and drive a motor vehicle. But did you know that you can also be held criminally liable for operating (pedaling) a bicycle while you are under the influence of alcohol in North Dakota? Yes, a bicycle, as in that old Huffy you occasionally take out for a test run before you realize the tires are too flat and then decide you don't want to ride it bad enough to fill the tires up with air. While not too common of an occurrence, bicycle DUI arrests do occur in our state, and I know with all too much familiarity that some have even been taken to trial.
