Area 51 drug test victim crashes flying car

'The government made me do it'

Top three mobile application threats

A 43-year-old man from San Rafael, Califonia, was charged on Tuesday with "driving while intoxicated and causing injuries, reckless driving, and hit-and-run with injuries" after ramming three other vehicles and slightly injuring two people, while under the influence of a veritable pharmacy of narcotics, the Marin Independent Journal reports.

According to officer Mary Ziegenbein of the California Highway Patrol, Antonio Patrinostro was "arrested Sunday evening on southbound Highway 101 near the Lincoln Avenue offramp after his car bumped into three other vehicles in 55-mph traffic".

However, this was no ordinary drug-crazed highway rampage, since Patrinostro "told the [arresting] officer that the vehicle could fly if he went fast enough, and basically just started bouncing off of cars".

Ziegenbein elaborated: "He was under the influence of cocaine, Valium and marijuana and stated that it was a top secret experiment with his doctor for Area 51 and the government. He also stated that he was working for a cure for AIDS by taking the drugs."

Patrinostro was booked into the county jail, and his bail set at $50,000. If convicted, he faces more than three years' jail. ®
