ATHENS, Ohio - A graduate student whose bike was mistaken for a pipe bomb and destroyed by authorities will get a new ride at Ohio University's expense.
OU Director of Legal Affairs John Burns said he'll write a check to 28-year-old Patrick Hanlin "once I figure out how much."
The university has agreed to replace Hanlin's bike, which bomb squad personnel dismantled looking for an explosive device earlier this month because the bike had a sticker on it promoting the punk band This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb.
