Peugot New Weapon Against Al-Qaida

Best excuse ever ™ for road rage comes to you today from France:

A driver in Montpellier, France, has been convicted for trying to run over a pedestrian he mistook for fugitive al-Qaeda boss Osama Bin Laden.
A court gave the 35-year-old man – named as Pierre, a struggling artist – a three-month suspended sentence.

His victim ran from the oncoming car, escaping injury when the vehicle slammed into the side of the street.

“It wasn’t Bin Laden,” the driver’s lawyer, David Mendel, said. “If it was, we would have won US$5 million.”

Let’s hope the French version of the Australia Council recognises this talented man’s protest at the corporatisation of justice and the biting commentary on the isolation of modern society. Or something. At least give him free meds.
