A Russian tourist in Bali has learned that a night of partying on Bali’s Kuta stretch can be subject to interruptions,  lasting up to a hundred days in duration.

Semen Gobvsky (25) set out for a night of frivolity on the night of July 23, 2011, that apparently went badly awry. In the early hours of the following morning, the then heavily intoxicated Russian decided he needed transport and stole the bicycle of a local resident on Jalan Drupadi in Seminyak.

Showing equal skills as  a drinker, cyclist and a thief -  the man only managed to travel  300 meters before falling off his newly acquired bike to be then fallen upon by members of the community who eventually turned him over to the police.

Judges in hearing the case granted leniency to the young Russian, taking into consideration the man's tender age and his severe inebriation at the time of the theft, sentencing him to only 100 days in prison.

With 90 days already served in jail awaiting trial, Gobvsky only has another 10 days to serve beyond his October 26th sentencing to once again become a free man.

As courtesy and precaution to Bali bicyclist, Gobvsky will reportedly be provided with official transportation from the prison to the airport where immigration officer will promptly place him on a flight home.
