Default Drunk in charge of a bicycle and obstructing Police

A DRUNKEN cyclist who rode along the A19 in dark clothing late at night
has been sentenced by York magistrates.
Christopher Bernard Power, 46, “was wobbling about the road unable to
keep a straight line” and a Vauxhall Corsa had to brake when the cyclist
swerved into his path in Escrick, PC Michael Rowan told the court.
Giving evidence at Power’s trial, he said when he and another officer
managed to stop Power after several attempts, “I had to go up to him to
stop him falling over".
Power claimed he was called “Pavel” and was so abusive and struggled so
much it took four officers to get him into a police van.
He screamed and continued to be violent at Fulford Road Police Station,
the court heard.
Power, of Chestnut Drive, Holme-on-Spalding-Moor, east of Selby, did not
attend his trial and was convicted in his absence of being drunk in
charge of a bicycle and obstructing police.
He smelt of alcohol and had glazed eyes.

Yet another example of how cyclists are treated more harshly by the courts than motorists.
Smelling of alcohol and having glazed eyes would not be enough to convict a motorist.

Only 12 months' conditional discharge and a £20 statutory surcharge?

Would a driver escape being convicted of assaulting police after he/she
had assaulted police?

Would a driver escape being convicted of assaulting police after he/she
had assaulted police?


and would a drunk driver that failed to stop when directed to do so and
subsequently failed to attend court, have received merely a conditional
discharge and a twenty quid fine?

Yawn! A motorist who merely smelled of alcohol and had glazed eyes would not have ended up in court.

They most certainly would end up in court for assaulting four police
officers.

ISTR that Bertie Wooster got off a drunk in charge rap by arguing that it would have been impossible to ride a bike whilst drunk.

Good wriggle there!

He (Tom Crispin) is in Croatia now on his epic year long trek around Europe.
