Guy Driving A Barbie Toy Car Arrested For DUI

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A British man banned from driving for four years for drunkenly driving a battery-powered Barbie toy car admitted he had acted like a twit.

barbiePaul Hutton, 40, said he found the toy car, designed for 3-to-5-year-olds, abandoned about a year ago and he has been working on it at his Jaywick, England, home for about a year with his 17-year-old son, the Colchester Gazette reported Monday.

Hutton said he had been drinking while working on the toy the day of his arrest and decided to take it for a spin."


A friend of mine has been working on an old jalopy for over a year, and he`s yet to take it for a spin. I tell him that he`s wasting his time, but he always responds that he enjoys tinkering with the hooptie.

But this clown takes the cake, he`s been working on a Barbie toy car for about a year. I wonder if his wife has divorced him?

My friend hasn`t driven his car yet, but this fool took the Barbie toy car for a spin, and was promptly arrested for driving under the influence. He wasn`t charged with speeding, the toy car`s top speed is four miles per hour.

This idiot`s license was suspended for three years, but he`s lucky he wasn`t sentenced to jail. Can you imagine the grief the jail birds would give him if they found out he was in the slammer for being under the influence while driving a Barbie car?
