In a move that could prove a blow for lovers of Wine Gums and rum pudding, a drunk driver in Wisconsin reckons the only reason he was over the limit was because he’d just eaten some beer-battered fish and chips.
His fishy story might have sounded a little more convincing had he not been convicted for nine previous DUI offences. That’s a hell of a lot of fish and chips by anyone’s standards!
John Przybyla, 76, was arrested after a deputy noticed his truck cross the centre line of a state highway. Przybyla denied drinking alcohol, but said he had eaten beer-battered fish earlier in the evening and took that same excuse to court.
Unsurprisingly, the judge wasn’t convinced and John faces a few years behind bars for repeated offences.
B-a-tter luck next time John.
