Fargo police say no booze allowed on bicycle bar

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo police say they won't allow booze on a bicycle bar. The Bar Hopper owned by Jon Vannett is a 15-seat pedal-powered vehicle chartered by riders who bring their own alcohol and drink as they cruise city streets while a hired sober driver steers.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo police say they won't allow booze on a bicycle bar.

The Bar Hopper owned by Jon Vannett is a 15-seat pedal-powered vehicle chartered by riders who bring their own alcohol and drink as they cruise city streets while a hired sober driver steers.

Vannett plans to use the bike during the North Dakota State football game Saturday, but Police Chief Keith Ternes (TUR'-nuhs) says any rider drinking alcohol could be cited.

Vannett's vehicle is approved to run in Minnesota cities because state law allows it. Ternes tells The Forum that such a vehicle is not clearly defined in North Dakota law.

Vannett argues that his business is covered under the same law that allows limousine and party bus riders to drink on board.
