It worked. He got the vehicle to start. But the process apparently upset the raccoon, who inflicted numerous bites and scratches on the man.

The man was charged with drunken driving. And with 'abuse of a public animal'.

Oh, and as for the car? It ended up in a swimming pool.

Man uses raccoon to get around a breathalyser and is then attacked by it - Telegraph

A not-so-funny result could be that the raccoon has rabies, and thus has given a strong exposure to the not-so-bright man.
I'm guessing this guy is in a heap of trouble altogether.


ETA: read the whole story; the reporter has not even verified the source. It's probably a joke.

I don't believe he just "found" a raccoon, there's probably a secret drunk driver advocacy organization that is breeding animals to do this.

was wondering when this would show up here.

This story sounds like it is from a cartoon, and it may not be true. However, we have contacted the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps and the local police force to find out whether it is.
probably too funny to pan out as true..

gives me an idea for a business .. i wonder how hard it is to raise a raccoon and train it .... but on a serious side would`nt it work if a fellow blew up a few big balloons for the same purpose.
