Evil Republican on a SegWay
Minn. Court Rules No DWIs On Segways
MEDINA, Minn.(WCCO)– A Medina man pulled over for driving a Segway under the influence has beat those charges – again. In fact, the Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled Segways are exempt from DWI laws.

Last February, police in Medina pulled over Mark Greenman on his way home from a bar. His blood alcohol tested 0.19.

However, the Minnesota court ruled that a Segway is a personal assistive mobility device, which, like a wheel chair or scooter chair that both go under 15 mph, is exempt from DWI law. Bicycles are also exempt.

So, Greenman’s charges were dropped.

“This isn’t a vehicle that is meant to be driven on the roads or the highways. It’s mainly for people who are disabled to get around,” said

Attorney Kevin Sieben says the list of motor vehicles you cannot drive is extensive.

“Boats, jet skis, snowmobiles, cars, anything that has a motor and moves essentially,” said Sieben.

Even though Segways, wheelchairs and bicycles are not covered under DWI law, you can face other charges if you operate them while drunk, including public intoxication or careless driving.

The court did make an exception for jiggers on segways or bikes, since there would be a high probability that the vehicle in question would have been stolen from a white man.

If only the guy had been a Democrat Public School Employee who is a counselor for kids with alcohol and drug problems, then we could have given him a raise in pay like they did in the Lakeville School District a couple of weeks ago.

More likely a Democrat beating the DWI rap. Most of the lowlife attorneys are Dems. Look at what his practice is, it appears to be a Democratic leaning practice.

Just like the drunk loser Democrat from the Lakeville Public Schools a couple of weeks ago who ended up getting a raise instead of getting fired.

Men step up, you make excuses....

Crap your pants, it's your "talent"...

Guess, that's the story of your failure.
