Man Tells Cops Unicorn Caused Crash

Postby sox 06 » Wed Mar 14, 2007 1:58 pm

I believe him, wouldn't you? :-b

BILLINGS, Mont. - A man told police not to blame him for crashing his truck into a light post - it was that unicorn behind the wheel. Prosecutor Ingrid Rosenquist said Phillip C. Holliday Jr. initially denied driving the truck involved in the March 7 crash in Billings. He told officers at the scene that a unicorn was driving, she said.

Holliday, 42, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony charges of criminal endangerment and drunken driving.

A pickup truck drove through a red light and nearly struck another truck in the intersection, according to court documents. The driver then made an erratic U-turn through a gas station, crossed the street and crashed into a light pole. Nobody was injured.

Holliday has five drunken-driving convictions. District Judge Gregory Todd kept his bail at $100,000 despite his lawyer arguing that Holliday's last such conviction was 14 years ago.

Something tells me this isn't the first time someone blamed a unicorn for some little mishap. :-b

This will make #6.

Why? Why is someone like this behind the wheel of a car? This time it was only a lightpole, but he will eventually kill someone (if he hasn't already). :-t
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Just think if he had hit someone at the gas station or a gas tank. I agree, this guy shouldn't be driving a car. :-t

Where is 'Cops' when you need it? What an idiot!!

I can only hope that the judge has a sense of humor and sentences him to have the tape of his statement uploaded to YouTube...

Can't really blame the guy, we all know this happens to us all, those damn mystical creatures are to guile to say no to. Luckily I added unicorns to my insurance policy.

What is he complaining about? His unicorn was behind the wheel, while I had a tiny one poking holes in my exhaust and crapping in my filters.
