When you gotta go, you gotta go. Best excuse for bailing on a crash scene goes to Carlos Baca, who just had to leave after some bad Chinese food.
According to Off The Beat with Will Greenlee, Baca got into a traffic accident early in the morning of May 6. When a police officer responded to the scene, the man whose vehicle was backed into by Baca explained what had happened, and that Baca in his red pick-up left the scene in a hurry.
So, you know, classic hit-and-run scenario, right? Hardly.
The 27-year-old later returned to the scene, and was identified by the man as the individual who crashed into him. Baca, for his part, apologized for his hasty departure and explained that he was literally about to poop his pants.
“Baca reported he left briefly because he had ‘bad’ Chinese food and did not want to defecate in his pants,” said the affidavit. “Baca apologized for leaving, but believed he had no choice, as he was on the verge of defecating in his pants.”
I can only imagine how the officer on the scene managed to keep a straight face through that explanation.
Despite Baca’s honesty and intention, he actually was driving without a license. He apologized for that too, but the officer had to arrest him for it because, you know, that’s illegal.
It’s a misdemeanor charge, but it’s still extra hassle he could have avoided if he would have made a pit-stop back at home during his dumping adventures to pick it up.
What do you think? Is “bad Chinese food” a good excuse to leave the scene of a traffic accident? Sound off!
