Dismissal of Segway DWI Charges upheld

Published On: 22nd January 2013

The Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld the dismissal of DWI charges against a man who was arrested for operating a Segway while under the influence. The court held that a Segway is not a motor vehicle under Minnesota law and stated that “excluding the operation of Segways from the DWI statutes avoids an unreasonable and illogical result.”
