BRYAN, Texas - Police say a man arrested for drunken driving blamed a turtle, a cat, a squirrel and an overhanging tree in a Central Texas wreck.
When police arrived at the scene just southeast of College Station on Tuesday, the 33-year-old slurring driver was still in his seat and unaware of his location. A witness told officers the driver passed him on the right shoulder, hit a guardrail, left the road and struck a tree.
The Eagle of Bryan-College Station reports (http://bit.ly/1ocJlDz ) the North Zulch man told officers he swerved to avoid the critters and hit the tree.
Police didn't buy the explanation and charged the man with drunken driving.
Records show it's his second such arrest, and he could face a year in jail. He's free on $7,500 bond.
