    "Tipsy" Vanity Plate Bad News

    Man with 'TIPSY' vanity plate pulled over for drunken driving

    MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — Having a vanity plate that reads "TIPSY" may not be such a great idea after all.

    Josiah Johnson, 23, said his license plate might have tipped off the Clay County sheriff's deputy who pulled him over Friday after he left Coach's Sports Pub in Moorhead.

    Now he faces third-degree drunken driving charges after his blood-alcohol level allegedly registered twice the legal limit.

    Johnson said he bought the personalized license plate for his Jeep to describe the way it rode — then kept it as a joke when he got a Chevy Silverado because he likes to party.

    "It doesn't mean I drink and drive," he said. "It just means I have a good time."

    Johnson, who was slated to appear in court March 22, said he'll never drink and drive again.

    "I feel really stupid," he said.
