Cat Blamed For Madison, Wisconsin SUV Accident

A Wisconsin driver who sped through a stop sign at 75 MPH, lost control, hit a tree, flipped over and hit a second tree now blames a cat for the accident.

A police officer observing the intersection in Madison, Wisconsin observed local resident Scott T. Arnold blow through the stop sign far in excess of the posted speed limit. He started to give chase, but Arnold lost control and crashed on the next corner. Apprehended after trying to flee on foot, Arnold tried to explain the entire incident by saying he was "just trying to avoid hitting a cat."

Arnold now faces charges for drunk driving, failing to stop at a stop sign and speeding. No word on the cat. [via The Capitol Times]
