Every now and then, such an absurd idea comes our way that we're sure nobody is actually taking it seriously. Whether it involves people eating Tide pods or claiming the earth is flat, our first instinct is that they must be pulling some elaborate prank on everybody.
And even if they are serious, it's not like their efforts could possibly get them anywhere, right?
Well, that's likely what people thought last year when they heard the story about a South Carolina woman who provided what we'll charitably call a risky defense after getting arrested for driving under the influence.
And yet, it seems that the world loves to use cases like these to prove how unpredictable it is because her case apparently had a better result than most people would ever imagine.
