Jason Botos, 30, had a novel defense to avoid being sentenced for drunk driving in Nebraska: he was too drunk. Botos showed up at the Papillion courthouse so drunk that his father needed help from deputies to get him from the car to the courtroom.
After the prosecutor told the court that Botos was too drunk to appear, the judge issued a warrant for his arrest and deputies arrested him in the parking lot.
Botos pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drunken driving in a September 2009 collision with five other vehicles.
In the earlier accident, three of the drivers suffered critical injuries and two drivers suffered serious injuries. It is remarkable that Botos only received a misdemeanor since he already had a drunken driving conviction and previous citations of driving with a suspended license and reckless driving.
He now faces additional charges.
