From WDSU in New Orleans, LA:
Some might say anything to get out of a ticket, but police in Thibodaux said a man soiled himself to avoid arrest. Police said they pulled over Wayne Benoit, 53, about 2 p.m. Tuesday after officers noticed Benoit’s truck swerving in the road, nearly striking a bicyclist. According to police, Benoit smelled of alcohol and failed a field sobriety test.
Once Benoit realized that he was going to be placed under arrest, officers said he began straining and purposely soiled himself. Officers said Benoit thought he would be released after the episode. The act didn’t deter officers from arresting him, however.
Benoit was taken to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center, where it was determined he had a blood alcohol level of 0.20.
