This wasn't their typical traffic call: Police say they came across a grown man passed out in the middle of the street next to his child-sized pink bicycle.

Apparently, the man told officers he had gotten drunk on the beach last Friday before riding down the street on a kid's bike when “something happened” to him. He hit the ground at 48th Avenue and Cabrillo Street, just north of Golden Gate Park, where he passed out. 

Officers cited the man for bicycling under the influence (see it does happen!) after finding a jail identification number on him. We contacted the cops to get more information on this jail ID and will update when we know more. 

In any event, when officers realized the manchild was unable to stand on his feet, they called for medical units who then transported the early morning rider to San Francisco General Hospital where he sobered up before pedaling home, on his pink bike, of course.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
