BILLINGS, Mont. - A man told police not to blame him for crashing his truck into a light post it was that unicorn behind the wheel. Prosecutor Ingrid Rosenquist said Phillip C. Holliday Jr. initially denied driving the truck involved in the March 7 crash in Billings. He told officers at the scene that a unicorn was driving, she said.

Holliday, 42, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony charges of criminal endangerment and drunken driving.

A pickup truck drove through a red light and nearly struck another truck in the intersection, according to court documents. The driver then made an erratic U-turn through a gas station, crossed the street and crashed into a light pole. Nobody was injured.

Holliday has five drunken-driving convictions. District Judge Gregory Todd kept his bail at $100,000 despite his lawyer arguing that Holliday's last such conviction was 14 years ago.


I think my favorite part is how the writer uses the generic term "the driver" as if the unicorn story could actually be true.

In a follow up, there's no word on whether a red bull was seen in the area. A spokesman for King Haggard stated that the King has no comment at this time.

Unless that truck has a sunroof, I think it would be very difficult for a unicorn to drive it. :dunno:

Well, now you're just being ridiculous.

Unicorn? Heck no! It wasn't a unicorn driving, it was the Minnesota Timberwolves Eddie Griffin. It can be confusing, however, since they are both obviously horny creatures...


Witnesses and friends state that he was watching a "porn movie on DVD in his vehicle, and was m*st*rb*ting".

Forget the horn - no thumbs!

That's probably why they crashed.

There you go. The hooves may present a problem too. That unicorn would have to be a pretty good driver to make a U turn through a gas station and not hit anything or blow anything up.

I'd just like to take this time to say that I believe the Unicorn is the most overrated mythological creature of all time. I've seen horses. I've seen horns. I am unimpressed.

That leprechaun jumping out in front of the truck didn't help matters much.:rolleyes:

This is one of many reasons why we must make sure unicorns are permanently wiped off the face of the Earth, once and for all!
That, and Legend.
