Motorcyclist appears to be watching TV while driving

- While returning to the FOX 13 News studios, reporter Aaron Mesmer recorded what appears to be a motorcyclist watching TV while driving along Interstate 275 South. 

It happened Wednesday evening. Mesmer said he was in the passenger seat when he saw what looked like an iPad-sized screen out of the corner of his eye. When he focused on the screen he realized it was attached to the front of a motorcycle, pointed to the driver's face. 

In several clips of video, there seems to be several shots of video with a person's face visible in one frame. The screen does not appear to have a map or other GPS display. During another frame, what appears to be two heads appear on the screen. 

Mesmer said the motorcyclist drove for several miles, with the video playing the whole time, before driving out of view. 

A previous version of this story said the motorcyclist was driving on I-275 N. It has been corrected to reflect the motorcyclist was driving south.
