What would you do if you got drunk and needed Jesus while cops were chasing you? Jump into a nativity scene! Okay, that wouldn’t be my first choice, but a young Englishman thought it fit to do so after crashing his Mini Cooper into a metal barrier in North Yorkshire, England! According to North Yorkshire Police, “The incident occurred around [2:40 a.m.] on Saturday morning on Leeds Rd. in Tadcaster.”
The young man ended up ditching his car on Leeds Rd. and ran about 650 ft. to a large shed that was housing a nativity scene, where he attempted to hide from the cops. Shielding himself with baby Jesus and the bossom of Mary, the driver thought he had escaped the jaws of the justice system. However, North Yorkshire Police ended up finding this guy and gave him a breath test. “The driver was located and arrested for failing roadside breath test. Has provided sample in custody above the limit and been charged to court.”
In order to let their community know what to expect to see on the news later, they tweeted, “Driver runs from RTC in #tadcaster & tries to hide in nativity display. Located & arrested #overthelimitunderarrest.” This gesture only seemed to spark a most perfect holiday roast session, because Twitter went in on shorty right quick!
