Rocket Raccoon

Move over, Rocket Raccoon. There’s a new ring-tailed beast in town.

CBS is reporting a San Diego man had a rare coon encounter last night. The man needed to blow into a Breathalyzer to start his car, but was too drunk to do so.


As luck would have it, the man noticed a raccoon rummaging through the garbage a few feet away. He captured the innocent creature and placed his furry little mouth on the Breathalyzer. Remarkably, it worked and the man was able to start his car.

Exhausted from all of the blowing (or possibly overcome by the alcohol fumes emanating from his captor), the coon passed out in the front seat. A short time later, the creature woke up and attacked the driver.

According to CBS, the man kept driving. He ultimately crashed into a residential fence and “came to a stop” in a swimming pool.

“Let he who has not kidnapped a raccoon to blow into the ignition breathalyzer interlock system cast the first stone,” CBS reporter Stephen Quinn commented on Twitter.

It is not known whether the man has been charged with any violations, or if the raccoon has a lawyer. (For more on animals with lawyers, see Monkey Selfie Case May Set New Legal Precedent).
