The Question:

Can a person riding a bicycle be arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs?

The Answer: No, BUT

There is no state statute that condemns operating a bicycle under the influence of intoxicants. However, most towns/cities have an ordinance regarding public intoxication. In some communities, this ordinance can be used to arrest a bicyclist operating a bicycle on a public roadway under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

While there is no state statute, be mindful of ordinances in your town/city and always be safe.
