INDIAN RIVER SHORES, Fla., Nov. 15 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested a cyclist clad only in an upside-down shirt and boxer shorts who smelled like he had defecated on himself.

The Indian River Shores Department of Public Safety said an officer on patrol Nov. 3 saw Sergey Smirnov, 54, swerve into oncoming traffic from a northbound bicycle lane, where he had been riding south, TCPalm.com reported Thursday.

The officer said Smirnov, who smelled of booze and feces, was wearing a button-down shirt upside-down.

The officer told Smirnov he would be arrested if he was seen riding in the street again, and he was arrested about an hour later after again swerving into traffic and nearly striking a patrol car with his bicycle.

Smirnov was arrested on a disorderly intoxication charge.
