THE ODDEST EXCUSE TO GET OUT OF A TICKET

Posted in Pictures, Video, Commercials, Media, Uncategorized by wolferadio11 on October 12, 2012

When Warren Michael III was pulled over by a Clay County, Fla. Sheriff’s deputy under suspicion of DUI, he offered up an excuse that the officer probably never heard before: There was a squirrel under Michael’s shirt and it was eating him.

Michael was pulled over after a motorist called the Sheriff’s office to report a reckless driver, according to WTLV. The deputy followed Michael’s car and pulled him over after witnessing the car cross over onto the grass shoulder and almost hit a stopped car head on.

When the officer reached the window, Michael immediately explained that his pet squirrel was eating him, pointing to a small rodent wrapped up in his shirt.

The deputy also noticed the scent of alcohol on Michael’s breath and that he was talking rapidly, slurring his speech and using a lot of profanity. After Michael couldn’t produce his license or registration, he was taken out of the vehicle — after being asked to secure the squirrel — and given a field sobriety test.

He was subsequently arrested for DUI and police called his girlfriend to take possession of the car…and the squirrel. Michael was cited for DUI and driving without a seat belt.
