DUI While Driving Barbie Electric Toy Car

Essex, England – In an unusual DUI, the Telegraph reports that a man received a DUI and a three year driving ban for operating a child's Barbie electric toy car.

Paul Hutton, 40, received the three-year driving ban as an enhancement to the DUI conviction because he had previously received a DUI conviction within the past ten years. Mr. Hutton admitted to operating the toy car while drunk. Hutton further stated: “I was very surprised to get done for drink-driving but I was a twit to say the least.”

The electric Barbie toy car, which reportedly has a top speed of 4 miles per hour and which was designed for 3 to 5 year old children, can be easily overtaken by a walking pedestrian. Mr. Hutton had been working with his son on the car as part of his son's mechanics class project, and could not resist the urge of taking the toy car out for a test drive.
