Daredevil Robbie Knievel Arrested In Sturgis For DUI In A Motorhome

robbieknievelchpRobbie Knievel, the 51-year old daredevil son of Evel Knievel was unapologetic when arrested for DUI while driving a motorhome and crashing in 2 RV’s.

“I ride motorcycles and I friggin’ drink and ride. That’s my deal” said Robbie. And adding these words “I shouldn’t be drinking and driving ’cause I could kill somebody … and you know what, it would be better if I killed myself.”

Well, the alcohol fueled stunt will cost Robbie Knievel a 30 days driving privilege suspension, a $600 fine and probably a couple of lawsuits from the damaged RV’s owners.

Crossed Robbie several times this week in Sturgis. Fortunately, we were both walking…

    Not gonna cast stones here but I wonder what his BAC was. Pretty much a known fact he is a professional drinker. Have had a drink with him myself. Hopefully no bodily injuries. peace

    He might want to have a talk with Billy Lane.

    30 days driving privilege suspension, a $600 fine ?? Is that it for South Dakota? Average DUI in FL is $15,000 including attorney fees, fines, lost work, mandatory alcohol awareness meetings, etc.

    Are the effects of his fathers many head slams and numerous face plants passed down through the current gene line? Is it Krankenzimmerkopf’s syndrome?

    “Are the effects of his fathers many head slams and numerous face plants passed down through the current gene line?”

    Probably, but not from the motorcycle jumps. From falling off bar stools, maybe.

    Growing up in the hard-drinking-miner town of Butte, Mont., in the early 1960s, Knievel recalls his dad supplying him and his brother with booze at an early age.

    “Back then, dads letting their sons drink didn’t even raise much of an eyebrow,” the younger Knievel said.

    The elder Knievel was legendary for his drinking escapades and the younger Knievel followed, first as a rebellious teenager and later as an adult.

    So, this wasn’t an “official” stunt in which he happened to be drunk, but a stupid Driving Drunk stunt in which he wrecked ?

    Robbie, we all love you, and you have nothin’ to prove. You are an amazing talent, and you still have a chance to take your career to new heights. There’s no shame in asking for help, and there are plenty of people out there who would be proud to be on your support team. Put down the bottle and take control of your life, we don’t wanna lose you .

    Yeah, what Pat said, honor yourself by seeking help again.

    Any vehicle (cycle or motor home) when operated by a drunk driver should no longer be looked at as a vehicle & driving infraction, but an illegal weapon that will kill innocent people.

    Hey, it not easy being a Daredevil of a Daredevil!

    Way to keep it real baby. How about an action figure, bikes ,and a toy motor home reminiscent of Evil set I had as a kid? Please.

    had the keys to the kingdom and drank it all away . the name Knievel isn’t what it used to be .

    Just as there are Indian Reserves, so there should be reserves for those who drink and drive/ride, then they can enjoy the “freedom” they so desperately desire – ie to be killed by a drunken driver/rider while you are stoned/drunk yourself…

    To drive/ride under the influence is stupid. The remedy is simple: drink (etc) yourself into a stupor (I do to), but do it when- and where you do not have to drive yourself, SIMPLE…

    BTW – riding without a helmet is a separate issue (some have brought the helmet issue into the realm of riding under the influence); if you have sufficient insurance and you fall without a helmet and you die, so what, it was part of your individual liberty and life goes on; drunk people kill others – IT IS NOT ON..!

    A little confused here. Most people here are criticizing Knievel for his drunk driving exploits but on another blog everyone is wanting to give Billy Lane a second, third or fourth chance after he killed someone while intoxicated.
    It doesn’t make sense to me!

    Cyril, the word is that you bailed Robbie out of Jail! I meant to ask you a while ago?

  23. 23 Cyril Huze Aug 21st, 2013 at 6:50 am

    Izadore007. False.

    Its obvious Knievel is a drunken moron that thinks rules are for the “other people”. The fact that he shows no remorse speaks volumes.
    Fortunately, these types of people generally tend to self destruct. Lets hope his self destruction is complete before he takes an innocent life on our highways.
