Wrong Way Ride Nets Drug, Weapons Bust
OCEAN CITY — A White Plains, Md. man was arrested on drug and weapons charges last week after allegedly riding a motorcycle the wrong way on Philadelphia Avenue toward a police vehicle.
Around 2:30 a.m. last Sunday, an Ocean City police officer was responding to Worcester Street for a report of two suspicious persons. The officer was heading south on Philadelphia Avenue near North Division Street when he observed a single headlight coming at him from the opposite direction. The officer slammed on his brakes to avoid a possible head-on collision with what turned out to be a 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle heading north on the one-way section of Philadelphia Avenue.
The motorcycle, operated by Carl Kupniewski, 24, turned into the 7-Eleven convenience store at North Division Street and the officer observed the operator nearly fall off the bike. The officer approached Kupniewski and immediately detected a strong odor of alcoholic beverage along with other evidence he was impaired.
