A 19-year-old man who believed he was too drunk to ride his bicycle decided a motorized shopping scooter would be easier transportation.

According to Wauwatosa police:

The Milwaukee man was riding in the 6700 block of West State Street at 10:44 p.m. Sunday when he spotted a scooter outside Metcalf's Market. He put his bicycle in the shopping basket, hopped on the scooter and took off.

Officers caught up with the man driving the wrong way on State Street. He said he had planned to return the scooter the next day.

His blood-alcohol content was 0.11.

He was not cited for drunken diving, but was arrested for theft.
