We have some shocking news to report. Late last night, General Mills’ most famous Leprechaun, Lucky was arrested for Driving Under the Influence. The California Highway Patrol pulled over Lucky on a narrow stretch of Highway 101, a couple miles outside of Hollywood. The car was originally stopped for excessive speeds. Officer Baker reported once they found out it was Lucky they were going to let him off with a warning, but Lucky started verbally abusing them.
“We first noticed the driver speeding, and pulled him over. When we saw it was Lucky, we gave him a warning and told him he was free to go. What can we say we love his cereal. But then he started shouting at us, telling us that we couldn’t have his fucking Charms.”
After the exchange of words the officers noticed a strong alcohol smell emanating from Lucky and his car. The officers then asked Lucky to step out of the car so they could perform a Field Sobriety Test.
“Lucky at first refused the test, then he tried to bribe us with autographed cereal boxes.” reports Officer Grossman. “He failed every damn test, horribly. I’ve never seen anyone this drunk.”
Lucky had Blood Alcohol Level of 1.4, way above the legal limit. A General Mills spokesman refused to speak on the matter, but did inform us that they will issue a statement soon. From what we are hearing it appears as if Lucky may be suspended from TV ads, and be removed from the cereal box.
Apparently M.A.D.D has already started a petition to have Lucky removed from the cereal. Because he is no longer a positive role model for the young children who eat his Charms.
The Trix Rabbit seems to be the only one coming out and supporting Lucky.
“I know what Lucky is going through. There have been times, I’ve had a little to much fun. Hell, there have been many a night where I’m shocked I didn’t get pulled over for drinking. It those fucking kids. I blame the parents of those children. You’d think they would raise their children on knowing the importence of sharing.”
Lucky was also unavailable for comment.
