A new excuse for driving while intoxicated. But the jury fails to buy it hook, line and sinker.
FOX's Tom Rigatti reports:
We all know we're not supposed to drink and drive, but eat fish and drive?
A 76-year-old Wisconsin man who was pulled over while driving erratically was charged by an Adams County Deputy of driving while drunk.
But, no officer, the guy said. I haven't been drinking and driving, I have been eating beer battered fish. The deputy smelled something fishy and didn't believe the man. So the suspect took it to court and demanded a jury trial.
The jury didn't buy it either. Convicting him of drunk driving and operating with a revoked license. It was his tenth DWI conviction.
