I am one of the few people that I know that hasn’t gotten a DUI (knocks on wood for the next five minutes, I don’t need that shit) and I have heard many friends try to make excuses — some own up to it — but I have NEVER heard anything as silly as this.
Daniel Asseff, (dude, look at this Facebook page), is facing charges that range from attempted murder, DUI, all the way to battery with a deadly weapon. Asseff testified in a Las Vegas court that the ghost of Dale Earnhardt ordered him to drive the wrong way on the freeway.
Oh man. That is something.
“That was for Dale Earnhardt Sr., the Intimidator. Told me to open that for racetrack for NASCAR and Indy car racing if approved by Mayor Goodman for twice a year,” Asseff reportedly told the court. They want that use that as a Grand Prix racetrack to open it wrong way backward.”
Apparently the ghost had quite the grip on him… he added…
“I just remember, I don’t know. I was kind of going that way. And I couldn’t change my direction. I was honking the horn and the bright lights on and I was wobbling back and forth to let people know I couldn’t change the way I was going.”
To the tape:
Let’s factor two things into this story.
First: In a jailhouse interview Tuesday with KSNV, Asseff claims he was discharged from a mental health facility Friday just before he drove the wrong way down I-215.
Second: The prosecution says Asseff was high on meth and heroin while he was driving the wrong way on I-215.
I do not know if ghosts are real. I do know that meth and heroin is.
I’m going to bet on that being the cause. But, I am not certain. Nor am I a lawyer.
