Fort Collins Man Arrested for Drunk Bicycling


A Fort Collins man is accused of drunken-bicycling following an Old Town police chase that ended after an officer pulled in front of the cyclist. 32-year-old Phillip Bass was taken to Poudre Valley Hospital for minor cuts early Tuesday morning before he was booked on 11 misdemeanor and traffic charges connected with the mile-long pursuit. Bass admitted to drinking at an Old Town bar and smoking marijuana. He faces a misdemeanor drunken-bicycling charge, three traffic charges of disregarding stop signs, a charge of careless driving, failing to ride in the right-hand lane, failure to use a front light visible from 500 feet, misdemeanor obstructing a peace officer, riding on a crosswalk, misdemeanor criminal mischief and misdemeanor resisting arrest.

Bass may be interested to know that Colorado is one of the best states in the nation to ride bicycles.  Colorado was ranked No. 2 in the nation as a Bicycle Friendly State by the League of American Bicyclists.  See our state’s report card here. Washington has been No. 1 for the past six years…
