If only one or both of his names were "Lionel" or "Hutz" this would have been far funnier.

What the fark. That is so stupid. It's like saying "It can't have been me that killed my wife. The glove doesn't fit"....

That would have been great to see, especially if he pulled out the wrong eye.

I think I'd like to have a robot attorney, so he could impress the jury by pulling his own head off during closing arguments.

"It was one of the most eye-popping legal moves in recent Philadelphia history."

I think the worst thing about that article is that the author probably had a smirk while writing that line.

That is defense?! Umm, if you're a lawyer, shouldn't you try to prove your client's innocence, instead of incriminating him further?

Simply put:
Driving Drunk = A stupid, irresponsible, inexcusable crime

Driving Drunk AND with a glass eye = Just frigging stupid

First the "Twinkie" defense, then the hot farking coffee at McDonalds, now the "glass eye" defense??

Where is Judge Judy???

Don't you have to have reasonably good vision to be issued a driver license? Having only one (real) eye is NOT having good vision, especially given that you pretty much lose the ability to judge distance in that case. I'd like to know who in the hell issued this moron a driver license in the first place...

Antinorm: You can be issued a driver's license
(in cali) if you have one good eye. The guy that does
all of my friend's tattoos(don't laugh he's very good!)
has one eye and drives just fine.
