What drinking problem?

A man goes to a party and has much too much to drink.  His friends plead with him to let them take him home.  He says no — he only lives a mile away.

About five blocks from the party, the police pull him over for weaving and ask him to get out of the car and walk the line.  Just as he starts, the police radio blares out a notice of a robbery taking place in a house just a block away.

The police tells the party animal to stay put, they will be right back.

They hop a fence and run down the street to the robbery.  The guy waits and waits, but finally decides to drive home.

When he gets there, he tells his wife he is going to bed, and to tell anyone who might come looking for him that he has the flu and has been in bed all day.

Two hours later the police knock on the door.  They ask if her husband is there.  His wife says yes, but that he has the flu and has been in bed all day.

The police produce his driver’s license.  Then they ask to see his car.  She wants to know why but they insist so she takes them to the garage.

They open the door.  There, sitting in the garage, is the police car, with all the lights still flashing.

This has been reported as a true story from either the Jacksonville Police department, or by a guy at his first AA meeting.  What I want to know is how did he open the garage door if he drove the cop car home, his keys and the garage door opener would be in his car, not the cop car.  It makes you go hmmmmm…
