Shippensburg Police cite Joseph Kennedy for infractions relating to riding his “pedalcycle” drunk

Shippinsburg, PA

On Monday, September 9, 2019, at approximately 1:57AM, an officer observed 23 year old Joseph Kennedy, Jr of Roxbury Road operating a bicycle haphazardly in the middle of the lane in the first block of West King.  The bicycle did not have front or rear lights and Kennedy appeared to be under the influence but just under the legal limit for per se DUI alcohol police say.

The officer said Kennedy was warned to walk the bicycle on the sidewalk.  A short time later he was observed on traffic cameras, again, haphazardly riding the bicycle north in the south lane of North Earl Street between Burd and Fort. 

Police say since reasonable warnings didn’t suffice, citations were filed charging Kennedy  Pedestrian under the influence to be on sidewalks, for not having lamps as required and for not operating his pedalcycle on right side of the road.
