Update: Carin tells me this needs a soundtrack. She’s right.
Police in Lincoln, Neb., took a man into custody Saturday after he smashed a car into a tree and a retaining wall while driving with his head out of the window “like Ace Ventura.”
The driver “informed officers that he crashed because of inoperable windshield wipers, which forced him to drive with his head out of the window, ‘like Ace Ventura’ due to the rain,” the report said.
The man was apparently referring to scenes from the 1994 movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, starring Canadian actor Jim Carrey. Carrey was forced to drive his vehicle with his head out of the window due to a smashed windshield.
I don’t want to alarm you, but it appears libations may have been involved.
He fled the scene of the crash, but when police caught up with him and had a chance to test his blood alcohol content, it came in at .137.
