Do Not Drink and Drive In a Barbie Dream Car

Take care!  There is an intoxicated madman speeding down the road. But he is not driving a Ferrari or a Porsche or even a a Lamborghini.   No sir. This drunken maniac was caught weaving down a street in the town of Essex in the UK.

Essex police arrested Paul Hutton and cited him for driving under the influence while driving a pink Barbie toy car.

Paul Hutton, a former RAF aeronautical engineer, was helping his son with a project for his car mechanics course when he decided that he simply had to take the car out for a spin. Maxing out at 4mph, the Barbie car can be tough to handle when you've had a snoot full and your mental capacity can sometimes lead you to act like you’re a kid again.

It is hard to determine what was more embarrassing: driving around in a pink Barbie car or receiving a DUI from the Essex Constabulary while driving around in a pink Barbie car.

When asked by members of the press, Hutton replied:

"You have to be a contortionist to get in, and then you can’t get out. I was very surprised to get done for drunk-driving but I was a twit to say the least.”

Yes, sir, to say the least. Hutton received a three year ban from driving only because this was his second DUI in ten years.
The judge’s comments?

"The vehicle is not even capable of doing the speed of a mobility scooter and could be outrun by a pedestrian. I find the defendant guilty and order him to stay 100 feet away from any Barbie dream car, GI Joe action jeep or Hello Kitty scooter."
