But what in the world makes him a Herb? Minus getting the prison time? And just the fact I’m posting about him?
Well, Mister Rudes, thought he could time travel. Yes, he thought he was making Back To The Future IV.
But how was he trying to do it? This is where the story gets a little more fun.
You see Rudes has been convicted of vehicular assault after admitting he was driving drunk and high on LSD last September when he crossed over the center line on Church Avenue in Ballston Spa and crashed, head-on into an oncoming vehicle.
What a a-hole right?
Well, to top that, at the scene of the crash Rudes told police, “I thought I could time travel and drive through (the other car)… I wanted to see what would happen.”
At Rudes sentencing, Saratoga County District Attorney Jim Murphy said, “This defendant mixed alcohol and drugs and believed he could time travel like the movie Back to the Future. He told the police that he intentionally drove into the other car to see what would happen.
Luckily, the driver of the other vehicle is fortunate to have only suffered injury and not death.
After serving prison time, Rudes will be required to have an interlock system installed in any vehicle he drivers for the next three years.
Rudes… you a HERB!
