A man suspected of driving drunk in central Texas doesn’t deny he was in a car accident. He just doesn’t think it was his fault.
According to The Eagle of Bryan-College Station, the North Zulch, Texas, man claims to have crashed his car while swerving to avoid a turtle, a cat and a squirrel. According to the driver, it was these animals – and a tree hanging over the road – that led to his accident.
Officers on the scene didn’t buy the driver’s story and arrested the man for drunk driving. The Associated Press reports this was his second such arrest, and the man could be facing a year in jail. He is currently free on a $7,500 bond.
