Robbie Knievel's latest stunt involves motorhome crash and DUI arrest

Evel Knievel's son has been arrested over an alleged DUI after he went from doing high-flying motorcycle stunts into crashing his motor home into two other RVs, police said this week.

Robbie Knievel was picked up by officers in South Dakota at the Buffalo Chip campground during the Sturgis motorcycle rally.

The legendary daredevil's 51-year-old son, who performs motorcycle stunts, is believed to have barreled into two other motor homes with his RV and then high-tailed it out of the campground.

Meade County Chief Deputy Tom Wilt said the Tuesday evening incident caused some property damage and the owner reported it. 

According to TMZ, when police caught up with the rampaging Knievel, he was sitting in the driver's seat while stopped in a parking lot and sending texts. 

The one-time popular stuntman reportedly told attending officers that he had three drinks. After taking a breathalyser test, Knievel was found to be three times the legal limit. 

He was taken to jail and booked in but later released. He was suspended from driving for 30 days and ordered to pay a $600 fine. 

Kenievel's spokeswoman, Charmaine Blake, tells The Associated Press in an email that Knievel had been drinking but denied he was intoxicated.
