Two 27-year-olds from Mass. and N.J. respectively, were cited with traffic infractions after they allegedly went for a ride around town with a skateboard tethered to a bike.

Police said Spencer Johnson, of Marston Mills, Mass., and Michael J. Spark, of Harvey Cedars, N.J., were seen by an officer on patrol by the Red Parrot as Spark pedaled a bicycle and Johnson rode a skateboard the wrong way along Thames Street, connected by rope.

The officer then reported seeing the duo turn onto America’s Cup Boulevard, where they nearly struck a vehicle head on, police said.

Once stopped, they were apologetic.

Spark was summonsed for driving the wrong way with an Aug. 18 Municipal Court date.

Johnson was summonsed for operating a toy vehicle in the roadway with the same court date.

Should have given them both a DWI - "Driving While Idiot."
