The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

A Cincinnati man who broke into a car, crashed out, and was subsequently discovered by the owner having a trouserless kip claimed his presence in the vehicle was due to a leprechaun who had obligingly let him in.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Nicholas Donohue found Kim Joseph LeBlanc, 36, "naked from waist down", and called in the cops. The car's speakers were apparently ripped out, and LeBlanc was subsequently "charged with public indecency and criminal damaging".

He was hauled before the beak yesterday and "ordered held on $2,000 bond". He was delayed in facing justice "because he was sick", the paper notes, and eventually walked into the courtroom "carrying a roll of toilet paper and a plastic air-sickness type of bag".

Other news agencies have suggested LeBlanc's sickness and his novel leprechaun defence may indicate drug use. ®
