Proof Homer Simpson Exists In Real Life...


A drunk driver trapped after overturning his car cracked open another can of beer while he waited for emergency crews to rescue him, a New Zealand court was told.

Paul Nigel Sneddon, 47, pleaded guilty to careless driving and drunken driving after being nearly three times over the legal alcohol limit in a district court in the city of Palmerston North, the Dominion Post newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Police found Sneddon, a former baker, trapped in his overturned Ford Laser on June 1, drinking a can of beer after he failed to take a corner properly and crashed through a wooden barrier, flipping his vehicle.

Defense lawyer Peter Young said that when Sneddon found he could not open the doors, "he had nothing else to do at that point, so he had another beer."

(Love the Lionell Hutt-style defense!)

When asked by police how much he had consumed, Sneddon replied: "Plenty, I've been drinking for four days straight."

please helps me write more gooder!

i am deeply offended that ff would make comments such as this.
the beer brewer and ford motor company share just as much blame for this incident as any of the baseless accusations pointed at mr. sneddon by ff.
ff, why not get down off your high horse and post some of incidents in which you have rescued monkey boy.
how many times have you assisted in sweeping those police reports under the carpet.
mr. sneddon has faced the music in this case. far from how chimpy deals with his behavior.
i coulda said sumpun' 'bout this being an insult to homer, but i tried a diffrnt direction.
