Man arrested for drunkenness after giving mouth-to-mouth to roadkill
A Pennsylvania man was arrested Thursday for public drunkenness. How did police know he probably wasn't truly sober? Because he was spotted trying to resuscitate a dead possum at the side of the road.
State police Trooper Jamie Levier says several witnesses saw 55-year-old Donald Wolfe of Brookville near the animal Thursday along Route 36 in Oliver Township, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, according to the Associated Press
Levier said that a witness watched Wolfe perform what appeared to be a seance over the roadkill, while a second witness watched the man conduct mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to the lifeless marsupial.
