A couple weeks ago we featured the Bicyclists Guide to Cleveland, the authoritative how-to for biking in our great town.

Looks like someone read it and took our advice. Hell, this man went above and beyond in his cycling adventures, mixing in drugs and alcohol to the already perilous activity of traversing the city's streets on two wheels.

From Sun News' Lakewood police blotter:

Police arrested a Lakewood man at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday after an officer saw him drinking from an aluminum can while on a bicycle before putting it in his pocket. Officers determined that it was a 12-ounce can of Bud Light. The man then told officers that he had a crack pipe in his pocket, hidden in an M&M’s candy container. He told police that he had been smoking crack rocks at his ex-wife’s house. Police issued a misdemeanor for drug paraphernalia.

Bravo, sir.
