Word of the Day: Specious

Drunken driving suspect tells court: Law doesn’t apply to him

An Allen Township man accused of driving drunk wore a Coors Light sweatshirt to court today and offered a novel defense.

The law doesn’t apply to him, Scott A. Witmer said, because he is a “sovereign man.”

“It means I live inside myself,” Witmer, 44, told a curious Northampton County Judge Leonard Zito. “I don’t live in the state of Pennsylvania.”

This is the first time I’ve ever heard of Cartesian Dualism being used in a defensive argument against DUI charges. To justify the existence of a soul, yes indeed, it has been used again and again.

I want to see this sort of thing happen more often.
