Lost man tracked by cell phone GPS chip
A Wisconsin man who got lost while bicycling home from a party got help from police who tracked him by the GPS chip in his cell phone.
La Crosse police also gave the man a ticket after discovering that his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
Police dispatchers got in touch with the company providing his cell-phone service, who were able to get his location from the GPS chip.
