Ohio Driver Blames Ozzy Osbourne For DUI

Associated Press

December 31, 2010

CLEVELAND — An Ohio drunken-driving suspect is blaming his arrest on Ozzy Osbourne. William Liston was arrested Christmas Eve in suburban Cleveland. WJW-TV says he told police officers, “Ozzy Osbourne and his music made me do it.”

Osbourne’s hits as lead singer of heavy metal band Black Sabbath and as a solo artist include “Paranoid” and “Road to Nowhere.”

Liston is awaiting arraignment. He’s to appear in court Tuesday on a charge of operating a vehicle while impaired.

In an unrelated case, Liston pleaded not guilty Thursday in Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Common Pleas Court in a November break-in at a medical office. He was released on bond.

Telephone calls to the 33-year-old Liston’s home in Aurora have gone unanswered.

    I always thought that if I was pulled over for speeding I would take my tape player before the judge and let him hear what I was listening to...and then ask, "Could YOU drive slow with Swing Out Sister doing Fooled by a Smile?" Ha!! What's the fine......where's my purse.....here you go, sir.
