ROSEVILLE, MI (AP) -

A suburban Detroit motorcyclist accused of being drunk when he ran over a teenager playing the smartphone game "Pokemon Go" has appeared in court.

Roseville police say 24-year-old Leonard Soucie of Roseville is charged with operating while intoxicated causing death. A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf during his arraignment Monday. He's being held in the Macomb County Jail pending posting of a $100,000 bond.

Police say 14-year-old Ryan Mannes entered a roadway about 9:30p.m. Friday while trying to "capture a Pokemon" and was struck by the motorcycle while returning to the sidewalk.

Soucie and his 26-year-old passenger also were injured.

Police say Soucie had a blood-alcohol content of 0.14 percent. Michigan traffic laws define drunkenness as having a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or higher.
