Drunk man claims Osborne's music intoxicated him

SOLON, OH (WOIO) - An Aurora man busted driving drunk is blaming his problems on the rock world.

The 33-year-old was nabbed the night of Christmas Eve after a concerned citizen tailed the erratic driver blowing through red lights and running other motorists off of the road.

Officers noticed the man had slurred speech and was unsteady on his feet when he got out of his car.

19 Action News has learned the man told cops that rocker Ozzy Osborne and his music made him do it.

He has been charged with OVI, hit-skip and failure to control.

The suspect is no stranger to police, and was indicted earlier this month after he allegedly broke into a Solon doctor's office.
