Evidently, his roommate
was not on the same team
Martin John Phillips was caught driving while drunk. He lied and gave his roommate's name instead of his own. He went to court, pleaded guilty, paid the fines and was forbidden to drive for eight months.
Of course, all this was done under his roommate's name.
His roommate, a truck driver, only discovered something was wrong when he was refused financing when trying to buy a new vehicle.
By this time, it was too late to charge Mr. Phillips with drunk driving.
Instead, Mr. Phillips received a new roommate, as he was sentenced to nine months in jail for lying.
