A Minnesota man accused of stealing a newspaper truck told police that he was running from zombies.

23-year-old Garret Howard Hulburt was charged with stealing a motor vehicle in September. A police report said officers found Hulburt near the truck only blocks away from where it was reported stolen.

Hurlbut told police that he had "jumped or fell from the truck" and was "running from zombies". Police said Hurlbut had "bloodshot, watery eyes and a strong odor of alcoholic beverages on his breath."

The old 'zombies were chasing me defense'. Wonder how Perry Mason would've reacted to a case like that.
