Drunk Man Sets Car Ablaze After Dozing Off Behind Wheel [VIDEO]
Aaron Edward Blake may be the first man to be arrested – not for drunk driving – but drunk idling.
Grand Rapids, Michigan police were called when neighbors heard a car running for more than an hour in the wee hours of Dec. 29. Blake, aka ‘The Drunken Human Torch,’ had fallen asleep at the wheel and his foot pressed down onto the gas pedal – igniting the car.
When police officer Eric Hornacher arrived on the scene, he had to yell at Blake to exit his car. Hornacher then spoke with the inebriated 32-year-old who replied in ramblings probably similar to that of Barney Gumble on “The Simpsons.” Blake – who would spent the night in jail – had no idea he was about to be engulfed in flames.
