Alaska man says he accidentally stole a car

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) " A motorist confronted by a state trooper said he was stunned when the officer told him the car had been stolen.

Charles J. Schultz explained that he was driving his Chevy Cavalier and everything was fine. That's when the trooper informed Schultz that he was actually behind the wheel of a Ford Escort.

Police charged Schultz with auto theft, felony driving under the influence and misdemeanor drugs misconduct. Police said the 27-year-old's blood-alcohol content was .166, more than twice the legal limit.

It all started when Fairbanks police received a report shortly after midnight Friday that a Ford Escort had been stolen from the parking lot of a gentlemen's club. An officer spotted the stolen Ford two hours later " with Schultz driving.

Schultz swore he had no memory of taking the wrong vehicle outside the club, according to a criminal complaint.

Knowing firsthand about the performance effects of sustained alcohol consumption, I can actually see this as being a true statement by Charlie Schultz.

@Walter Hinteler,
With that level of alcohol, I do believe him when he says he didn't know the difference between an Escort and a Cavalier.

However, I don't know that to be an acceptable defense in court.

@Walter Hinteler,
On more than one occasion, I have attempted to get into a car that looked just like mine, (white Honda Accord- They are all over the place) and was totally frustrated when my remote would not work.

And I wasn't drunk!!!!

@Walter Hinteler,
A family story involves someone who came to visit, was given the keys to a Honda Civic, and drove the wrong car out of the parking garage without knowing it. The mistake wasn't discovered until much later that day, when they went out for dinner, and the two went to two different cars...

Seems the old "We make it simple" slogan also extended to the keys and locks of the day.
