Acrobatic US driver in 85mph back-seat drunk sex prang

OK sarge, he says his name's 'Mister Tickle'

Security for virtualized datacentres

A court in Virginia must decide just whether it's actually possible to drive a car at 85mph while simultaneously engaging in drunken back-seat sex.

The answer is yes, according to a plaintiff who's filed a claim at Fairfax County Circuit Court for $75,000 damages against the driver who allegedly piled into his vehicle in May last year while over the speed limit, under the influence and on top of a female.

The taxi driver victim of the unnamed boy wonder states in his lawsuit:

  • Paragraph 10: “At the time of the collision, Defendant was going 85 miles per hour.”
  • Paragraph 12: “At the time of the collision, Defendant was having sex with a female.”
  • Paragraph 13: “At the time of the collision, Defendant was driving admittedly drunk.”
  • Paragraph 14: “At the time of the accident, Defendant was partially or totally in the backseat of the car.”

As the Washington Post notes, there is no paragraph 11, so we can only image what outrage has mercifully been excised from the lawsuit.

The case promises top legal entertainment. The defendant, who was apparently convicted of drunk driving in Fairfax district court last year (presumably as a result of the same crash), now improbably says he wasn't driving at all.

Rather than fingering his back-seat squeeze, he says yet another occupant of the car was actually at the wheel - something the mystery third party denies.

You're invited to try and make further sense of all this down at the Washington Post, which has more critical background right here. ®
