Update:Robbie Knievel defends DUI: ‘I friggin’ drink and ride … that’s my deal’

The daredevil son of Evel Knievel was arrested for a DUI in South Dakota on Tuesday after police say he went on a drunken rampage in a Sturgis trailer park.

Robbie Knievel was arrested around 6:38 p.m. outside of the Buffalo Chip campground where lots of tourists stay for the city’s motorcycle rally, TMZ first reported.

The park’s security called police after the 51-year-old drove his RV into two other RVs on the property, breaking a mirror and a bumper, and then tore out of the property, law enforcement told TMZ.

Police later found Mr. Knievel in a nearby parking lot, texting in the driver’s seat of the RV with the motor running. He blew a .228 in a breathalyzer test, almost three times the legal limit in the state, TMZ said. He also failed field sobriety tests.

Mr. Knieval was booked and released. His license was suspended for 30 days and he’s been ordered to pay nearly $600 in fines, according to TMZ.
