"I live inside myself, not Pennsylvania," Scott Witmer told a court, arguing it has no jurisdiction over him after his alleged DUI. The judge ordered he remain in jail pending results of a mental exam.

Easton, Pennsylvania resident Witmer believes his body is a sovereign nation, and therefore isn't subject to US or Pennsylvania law. He also argues there was no victim in his crime and is requesting a full trial so his case can be heard. He plans to represent himself. A defense attorney who's standing by in case Witmer does need representation reminded him an actual challenge to the traffic stop would need to be filed in order proceed to trial. [via Penn Live]
