York, Nebraska man with five automobile DUIs gets another one — in an aircraft on the runway

But he can skate on this one because, since an aircraft is legally considered to be different from a road vehicle, Bartholomew's newest conviction is considered to be a first offense.
According to court documents, the trooper and airport worker were talking when their attention was grabbed by the sight of an Ultralite aircraft entering the runway circle at the south end of the airport. They saw the aircraft then go into the ditch, back to the runway, down the runway and then off the runway, during which it damaged marker lights.
