Aussie Woman Blames Cat for DUI Charge

By Vladimir Negron    January 10, 2011 at 04:25PM

An unlicensed woman was recently pulled over for “drink-driving” (their equivalent of driving under the influence) near her home in Mudgegonga, Australia. Her excuse? She allegedly said she had bought some cat food and was on her way back home. Perhaps her kitty was really, really hungry.


The 27-year-old reportedly registered a .242 – nearly five times the legal limit – on the Breathalyzer exam. So what's next for this Aussie is anyone's guess. Maybe she'll go on a home burglary rampage and blame it on a blind dog?
