Drunken Scotsman Stopped for DUI on a Bouncy Ball

A Space Hopper

A Space Hopper

Well, we could have put to rest the #weirddui hashtag and category if this one had panned out. Authorities in Scotland stopped a man bouncing a “Space Hopper”, one of those big bouncy balls with “wee handles” down the street in a busy tunnel. We have covered some weird DUIs on this blog before, but this one would have taken the cake if the man had been charged. However, after stopping the man, authorities decided that no action would be taken. Perhaps Space Hoppers don’t meet the Scottish definition of “vehicle” to qualify for a DUI. Ironically, it would probably fit Florida’s broad definition of vehicle. So kids, don’t drink and drive bouncy balls!
