An unidentified man driving a blue sedan sideswiped one car and smashed head-on into an SUV in front of the Manhattan Criminal Court building just before noon yesterday, the Daily News reports. He then stumbled out of the vehicle and collapsed on the pavement as firefighters put out his car's small engine fire. It was then that they noticed the bottle of vodka that had been riding shotgun. According to the News, Department of Sanitation cops cuffed him until the NYPD got there. (Sanitation cops carry handcuffs?!) Fortunately, no one was injured in the crash, and charges against the driver are pending. To be sure, crashing in front of the courthouse was a nice gesture, but next time he wants to help streamline government services, he should drive drunk over to Rikers.
