After driving his car into a ditch, an Illinois man who reeked of booze explained to police that the reason they smelled alcohol on his breath was because he had “been making out with his girlfriend this evening and she had been drinking.”

Been there, done that.

That has been a lame excuse for years. The best I ever heard was from a guy I was doing an admission eval on who claimed he had run his car off the road because he needed to avoid hitting a 6ft.tall squirrel.
The excuse didn't work, but he got points for originality.

And his other girlfriend smokes a LOT of weed.

So drunkenness is a sexually-transmitted disease?

Rod N. -- Not necessarily, but stupidity is contagious.

A former friend actually tried the "I'm speeding to get to a bathroom because I have diarrhea" excuse.

The cop laughed.

I hope he treated his girlfriend with respect.

Jeff, sometimes that's not an excuse. I wouldn't want to be the cop who stopped somebody like that, in case they might go chimpanzee on me.
