Little Explanation Required

An Alaskan motorist who was confronted by a state trooper said he was stunned when the officer told him the car he was driving had been stolen. Charles J. Schultz explained that he was driving his Chevy Cavalier and everything was fine.

That’s when the trooper informed Schultz that he was actually behind the wheel of a Ford Escort.

Police charged Schultz with auto theft, felony driving under the influence and misdemeanor drugs misconduct. And to no one’s surprise, police said the 27-year-old’s blood-alcohol content was .166, more than twice the legal limit.

The whole incident started when Fairbanks police received a report shortly after midnight last Friday that a Ford Escort had been stolen from the parking lot of a gentlemen’s club. An officer spotted the stolen Ford two hours later—with Schultz driving.

Schultz swore he had no memory of taking the wrong vehicle outside the club, according to a criminal complaint.

Let’s see…the incident started at a gentlemen’s club—never been sure why they call it that, no gentlemen would be caught dead in one of those places! It took place after midnight—that’s when my mother and father said most people get into trouble! He was found to have a blood alcohol level of .166, .08 is considered drunk. He was charged with having drugs or drugs misconduct.

Do you really think his swearing he has no memory of the incident taking place will hold up in court? I certainly hope not!

But, this is the new America. Who knows what the outcome will be!


  1. Problem is Steve he probably does not have any memory of it if he was that drunk. Sad for many reasons.

  2. Steve is a victim here! Do you not understand that in Alaska, troopers have been found to be under the influence of daylight deprivation syndrome and are erroneously arresting people for no apparent reason? Because of the global warming and economic problems brought on because of the irresponsibilities of the Republican Party, including Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, people are granted a "spread the blame" mentality. It is reasoned that with all of the equatorial quarks that this page in history will soon be written.

    (Hey, it makes as much sense as his defense!)

  3. get the award for the snarkest comment of the week!

  4. Steve, I read that story in today's paper and wondered where in the world he got the key to the car he did not own. selahV
    p.s. I could be snarkier but then I might get singled out for a snarkier exposition of someone's blog. Not gonna do that. :)

  5. Mrs. snarky? NEVER! You have much more class than Rick!
