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