Excuse of the day

From The Magistrate we get this wonderful excuse, which even he admits is a first, for driving while disqualified:

We had a new one last week though. Darren was stopped driving his mate's car, that turned out to be uninsured. Darren's ban had run its course, but since he hadn't yet taken the test ordered by the disqualifying court he remained banned from driving. He hadn't meant to drive, but he had been at the mate's house with a few others when they realised that they had run out of cocaine, so Darren was nominated to go and score a fresh supply. He put this forward in a matter-of-fact manner as if it was the most normal thing in the world. In his world, it probably is.
He doesn't say whether he was more lenient for originality or whether he had to hide a smirk, but I'm sure I would have done both.
