DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) — The daredevil son of Evel Knievel has been arrested on a drunk driving charge in South Dakota.

Meade County Chief Deputy Tom Wilts told the Rapid City Journal ( ) that Robbie Knievel drove his motorhome into a couple of parked vehicles at the Buffalo Chip Campground, a popular spot during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

Wilts says the Tuesday evening incident caused some property damage and the owner reported it. Knievel was stopped a short time later by a South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper in Boulder Canyon and taken to the Lawrence County Jail.

Authorities say Knievel pleaded guilty to first-offense DUI on Wednesday morning and was released with his driver’s license suspended for 30 days and about $600 in fines.
