Area 51 "mission" excuse

Antonio Patrinostro, 43, was arrested last week north of San Francisco after ramming three cars and causing minor injuries. Apparently, he told police that he was on a mission for Area 51. He's facing three years in prison if convicted of felony drug and traffic charges. From the Marin Independent Journal:
Patrinostro "told the officer that the vehicle could fly if he went fast enough, and basically just started bouncing off of cars," (California Highway Patrol officer Mary) Ziegenbein said.

"He was under the influence of cocaine, Valium and marijuana and stated that it was a top secret experiment with his doctor for Area 51 and the government," she added. "He also stated that he was working for a cure for AIDS by taking the drugs."
