Moooving Violation

Police officers in the Town of Tonawanda, N.Y., must have done a double take when they got the report: a man wearing a cow suit had driven his car into the Niagara River. When they arrived in the area they found a man walking — and his cow suit was soaked, they say. “I just drove my car into the water,” the man confirmed. Jeffrey S. Barber told officers his GPS navigation system told him to take a right, but instead of going on the highway onramp he ended up on an access road to a boat dock, and he didn’t stop until he hit the river. Divers found the car — complete with four whiskey bottles, three beer bottles and the head of the cow suit. Barber was booked for drunk driving: his blood alcohol level was .20 percent. (RC/Lockport Union-Sun & Journal) ...Yuck: that’s enough to sour his milk.
