“Sovereign Man” disputes drink driving charge

The Morning Call website in Pennsylvania, USA reports on an usual defence to a drink driving charge.

The law doesn’t apply to him, he claims, because he is a “sovereign man”.
He continued, “I don’t live in the state of Pennsylvania … I live inside myself,” The 44 year old man told the judge that to convict him would be tantamount to “committing acts of treason, usurpation and tyranny.”

The judge has ordered a psychological examination of the man.
