A wild ride: from pick-up to bike to jail

About halfway through a drive from Memphis to Nashville, you will find Weakley County. The area is home to a man charged with multiple crimes after he allegedly stole a pick-up, crashed it and then stole a bicycle.

He is accused of driving under the influence and an implied consent violation, as well as leaving the scene of an accident, driving on a suspended or revoked license, burglary, theft and more, with additional charges coming, a TV news report stated.

According to the county sheriff's department, the man stole a 1988 Ford Ranger and was driving to a home in Greenfield. A few minutes later, deputies got another call: this time, the man had stopped at a convenience store and had driven off without paying for $38 of gas or for the beer he took.

According to the TV station, the caller said it appeared that the suspect was intoxicated.

Five minutes later, there was another call: the Ford Ranger had crashed into another vehicle at an intersection. Deputies were told that the suspect took a cell phone from the other driver in the crash and then pedaled off on a bicycle he found near the scene.

The allegations he faces are serious. A first-time Tennessee DUI offender can face up to a year in jail, as well as a substantial fine and mandated installation of an ignition interlock device at your expense. The implied consent charge means the suspect refused to submit to a blood test and that his driver's license is subject to revocation for a year for a first offense.
