CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania man is behind bars after police say he was biking under the influence.

North Middleton Township police say 23-year-old Benjamin Edwards had a blood alcohol content of 0.30 when he was stopped on his bicycle Monday night. The legal limit for drivers in Pennsylvania is 0.08.

Investigators say the Carlisle man tried to run away from emergency medical workers and resisted arrest. Authorities say he also refused medical treatment when transported to a hospital.

Edwards remains jailed on charges including driving under the influence, resisting arrest and public drunkenness. His bail was set at $65,000.

Carlisle is about 100 miles west of Philadelphia.
