    It was Gretchen, the dog. She’s to blame.

    Let me guess….
    After driving drunk and colliding with the house,and then after moving or driving his vehicle sounds like across the street to his own residency,once Law Enforcement was called and showed up,he:
    A) Told the LE Officer it wasn’t his vehicle that was involved in the accident causing the damage.
    B) After further inspection,maybe it was his vehicle doing the damage to the house,but it wasn’t him driving…his car must’ve been stolen overnight.
    C) He was home all night,with his friends having only 2 beers.Maybe one of his friends was driving the car,but don’t know which one it was.
    D) O.K….It was me driving,but a Dog ran in front of me,and I wasn’t drunk.
    E) Mechanical failure on my car…I turned left to go into my driveway and the car turned right into the house instead.
    Wonder which one it’s going to be ?
