It was the one-armed man, er, leprechaun, I mean unicorn!

Gotta love the news sometimes. Courtesy of the AP (via YahooNews):

Billings, Mont. – A man told police not to blame him for crashing his truck into a light post ? it was that unicorn behind the wheel. Prosecutor Ingrid Rosenquist said Phillip C. Holliday Jr. initially denied driving the truck involved in the March 7 crash in Billings. He told officers at the scene that a unicorn was driving, she said.

Holliday, 42, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony charges of criminal endangerment and drunken driving.

A pickup truck drove through a red light and nearly struck another truck in the intersection, according to court documents. The driver then made an erratic U-turn through a gas station, crossed the street and crashed into a light pole. Nobody was injured.

Holliday has five drunken-driving convictions. District Judge Gregory Todd kept his bail at $100,000 despite his lawyer arguing that Holliday’s last such conviction was 14 years ago.

Maybe it was the last unicorn perhaps?
