Bird scooters have become a growing nuisance on the West Coast and now they are responsible for at least one DUI.

First, he was riding on the sidewalk and riders are supposed to ride solely on the street.

Second, his breath also reeked of booze and the man was said to have refused taking a breathalyzer test.

The man was eventually arrested for a misdemeanor DUI after he failed the sobriety test.

Bird’s user agreement does state that riders are not to be operated under the influence of alcohol.

The man’s identity is currently unknown.
