Police Accept "Ear-Warming" Excuse From Driver With Cell Phone

Man Claims to Have Been Warming His Ear With Cell Phone While Driving
Walter Klein's talents for selling heaping piles of crap to people are going to waste behind the wheel of a tractor trailer. This man not only had the balls to tell police, who pulled him over for using his cell phone while driving, that he was just warming his ear, but was able to convince a court in Hamm, Germany that it was the truth.

Klein claimed that he had a earache that morning and was using the warmth generated by his freshly charged cell phone to ease some of the discomfort. Klein was able to produce an itemized telephone bill proving he had not been using the phone at the time of his arrest, and the court accepted his plea of innocence.

We're still not buying it. Something tells us Klein just hadn't finished dialing yet. But the guy deserves credit for being brazen enough to attempt such a blatantly lame excuse.
