Driver Blames Speeding on Poorly Dunked Oreo

If I didn't know better I would have thought this was my husband..................

He lost control of his BMW while fishing out cookie he lost in a cup of milk

SALISBURY, Conn. - Police say a man's excuse for speeding through a small Connecticut town takes the cake, or at least the cookie.

A state trooper who stopped the 1993 BMW last fall says its driver, 28-year-old Justin Vonkummer of Millerton, N.Y., blamed his driving problems on an errant Oreo.

Vonkummer told the trooper that an Oreo had slipped out of his hand as he dunked it in a cup of milk, and that he was trying to fish it out when he lost control of his car.

Prosecutors learned in court last week that a clerk had mistakenly noted in court records that Vonkummer had been charged with driving under the influence, rather than speeding and driving with a suspended license.

I think they changed the names to protect the stupid on this one! It sounds like even the clerk got a little bit shook up on this one!

I can just picture the police officer paging the home office "Another Oreo related injury"... ;-)
