Montana man's magical mystery tour

| 3/14/2007

Apparently, when you already have five drunken-driving convictions, you'll try almost anything to get out of a sixth.

The proof is a Montana man who crashed his pickup truck into a light pole in Billings recently.

When asked who was driving, the 42-year-old man told responding police officers that it wasn't his fault because he wasn't driving the truck - a unicorn was behind the wheel at the time.

The judge didn't buy the unicorn story, and charged the man with drunken driving and criminal endangerment.
