It happens to the best of us: "Man flees police claiming he's being chased by zombies"

One day, we're going to work on our excuses for doing the dumb shit we sometimes do. In the meantime, we'll take note of the other excuses being dropped in the court of law and see how those idiotic sayings pan out. In the case of a Tennessee man, when pleading guilty to stealing an 18-wheeler, causing multiple crashes on a highway, rolling the big rig and fleeing the scene, the composed thief simply said he was being chased by zombies.

Jerimiah Clyde Hartline, who faces five felony counts, told California police that he began driving erratically, swerving back and forth to shake the zombies who were on his tail. Whether he's telling the truth or not, two things are certain: Jerimiah needs psychiatric help or the bunk acid is making rounds in California. Our questions: did he end up shaking the zombies?
