Police wondered why the bicyclist was riding on the center yellow line - then he fell to the highway near a passing patrol car. Minutes later, the wobbly bike rider was charged with drunken driving. Police said Anthony Newbon, 21, of the 2100 block of Knights Road, had a blood-alcohol level of 0.23, more than twice the 0.10 level at which drivers are considered drunk under state law. Drunken-driving statutes apply to the operator of any vehicle, police said. Police Officer Christine Kelliher was eastbound on Knights Road, near Dunks Ferry Road, about 2:20 a.m. yesterday, police said, when she saw Newbon riding his bicycle on the yellow line in front of her. The cyclist suddenly lost control and fell to the roadway.

Thousands of commuters ride SEPTA. Most depend on it. I feel that SEPTA's employees realize the importance of their jobs. We have had many improvements on SEPTA lines. However, I strongly feel that SEPTA's administration does not seriously consider the riders' safety on buses. The employees provide a service for the public and are responsible for doing so. Those responsibilities should not and cannot include 20 passengers standing in the aisles. If this is legal in Pennsylvania and the United States, it should not be so. SEPTA buses have notices that no one can stand forward of the yellow line (marked on the floor)

Barry Bonds stole a glance at the video board as he trudged off the field, grinning in disbelief as he watched the replay of Andruw Jones turning a homer into an out. Another postseason disappointment for the game's greatest player? Nah. Bonds didn't have to come up big in Game 1 of the National League Division Series. His San Francisco teammates knocked around Atlanta's Tom Glavine and its heralded pitching staff, Russ Ortiz threw seven strong innings, allowing only five hits, and the Giants held on for an 8-5 victory over the Braves yesterday.

It had to happen. This home-run derby has had too many happy heroes, too many joyfully sentimental plots, too many hugs and high-fives and history-making moments. What this compelling story lacked was something as integral to baseball as, well, a home run. Controversy. Yesterday, Mark McGwire provided plenty of that on what should have been - and still might be - his 66th home run. The moment that might be replayed forever came in the fifth inning of the Cardinals' 11-6 win over Milwaukee, two at-bats after the St. Louis slugger had extended his record to 65 to match his 10-year-old son Matt's preseason prediction.

The Phillies escaped the snow and cold of the Northeast, only to be frozen out by the right arm of Cardinals pitcher Andy Benes and given the cold shoulder by an umpire. On a gorgeous, breezy evening - game-time temperature was 80, and there was no mention of a wind-chill factor - Benes held the Phillies to one run on three hits over 7 2/5 innings yesterday, and the Phils could muster just one more hit against two St. Louis relievers. The Cardinals scored two runs, one on a highly questionable umpire's call, for a 2-1 victory.

Police now believe that a cabdriver who was fatally shot June 13 near a West Philadelphia El stop was gunned down during an argument with a pedestrian. "The pedestrian was apparently standing in the middle of the street, blocking the highway. The cabdriver got out. . . . The male pulled out a weapon, fired a couple shots, striking him once in the chest and killing him," said Capt. Charles Bloom. Police are still seeking the killer, a gunman who ran away after shooting Armel P. Dorchery, 35, an independent operator who had been driving for the Victory Radio Association.

The Haverford Township teenager told the court he was positive of one thing: He looked both ways when he crossed a busy Delaware County street the night he was struck by an SUV driven by an assistant district attorney. Jake Vantrieste, now 15, suffered a broken leg and pelvis and had bleeding on his brain as a result of the incident on Nov. 4, 2011. Michael Donohue, 32, who prosecutors say left the scene, is charged with aggravated assault and related crimes. A former waitress at Sligo, a pub in Media, testified on Tuesday that Donohue ran up bar tabs totaling $120 that night.

The Phillies are still looking for that turning point, the revealing moment when a baseball team just knows fortune is starting to break its way. Last night could have been a night like that. But a home run call didn't go their way in the second. They couldn't take advantage of a gift-wrapped opportunity in the eighth. Todd Zeile swung through a pitch in the ninth and it turned into a doubleplay when Jim Eisenreich, who was running on the play, was thrown out at second. So when the lights above Busch Stadium were extinguished, the Cardinals had beaten the Phillies, 2-1. A strong start by Terry Mulholland was wasted.

C LEARWATER, Fla. - When I'm King of the World, Chase Utley Edition . . . Hitting will not be as easy as Utley made it look Saturday in his first seven rehab at-bats. After the Phillies second baseman went 5-for-7 with a pair of homers against two Blue Jays extended-spring-training lefthanders in Dunedin, I told him, "That was one helluva endorsement for 3 months of nothing but batting practice. " "I guess," Utley said, expansively. I asked if the next test for a knee wounded by patellar tendinitis would be how it feels the next day. "One day at a time," Chase elaborated.

Jimmie Johnson showed what he could do on the track at Dover International Speedway last season, punctuating his spectacular rookie campaign with a pair of dominating victories. In town yesterday to promote Dover's June 1 Winston Cup race, the 27-year-old Californian handled tough topics as deftly as he tamed the Monster Mile. "For safety purposes, we should do away with racing back to the line under yellow," Johnson said of a NASCAR issue. NASCAR allows drivers to race back to the start-finish line when a caution flag comes out. Other series typically set their field based on the running order of the lap before the caution.

Feel as if you're putting your life on the yellow line whenever you cross a street? Well, you are, and it may be getting worse. New middle-of-the-street signs warning drivers that pedestrians may be crossing are coming down for now - themselves victims of the area's highway mayhem. In the Philadelphia region in 2000, there were more than 4,200 accidents involving cars and pedestrians - eight times as many as in the Pittsburgh area, which is second on the state hit list. A recent study, in fact, showed pedestrians to be in greater danger in Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey than in the New York area.
