Ian Baker Is Just Smart Enough To Be Dangerous - Tells Court Officials A Jack Daniels Steak Made Him Drunk
Sheboygan, WI (The Weekly Vice) - Ian Baker, a 23-year-old Wisconsin man facing a fourth drunk driving charge had an interesting excuse for being intoxicated yet again....
According to court records, Baker was enrolled in the Intoxicated Driver Intervention Program after he was arrested in July for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. The arrest marks the fourth time Baker has been arrested on OWI charges.
Investigators say Baker attended the program Monday morning where he was given a blood alcohol test. The test resulted in a 0.07% blood alcohol level which is prohibited by the program.
When the caseworker asked why he violated the court-ordered mandate to not drink alcohol, Baker reportedly claimed he became intoxicated after eating a Jack Daniels steak the night before.
The caseworker clearly was not buying Baker's excuse.
Baker was booked into jail and charged Tuesday with misdemeanor bail jumping - a charge that carries a penalty of up to 9 months in jail.
Next on the menu for an excuse making drunk driver? Beer battered onion rings.
