State College man convicted of DUI while on bicycle

A 32-year-old State College man was found guilty Friday for riding his bicycle while intoxicated in downtown State College.

The Centre County District Attorney’s office said Frank Aritz Jr., 32, was convicted after a non-jury trial before Judge Bradley P. Lunsford.

Prosecutors said police saw Aritz riding his bicycle without a headlamp on an East Beaver Avenue sidewalk then on the South Allen Street bike route.

After he was stopped, Aritz reaction was “it’s a (expletive) bike,” according to prosecutors.

Aritz’s blood alcohol content was .164 percent, more than twice the legal limit.
