This is one for the ‘We can’t make this stuff up file’…..
We would imagine that most of you at one time or another tried to explain something to a police officer or a judge that maybe was a little hard for them to swallow. Bet ya can’t top this one….
On June 2, 1988, James Brown’s third wife Adrienne was in court where she was answering to charges of driving under the influence of drugs, speeding and criminal trespass.
Her defense attorney, Allen W. Johnson, introduced a novel defense at her trial claiming that Adrienne’s status as the wife of James Brown, the “Ambassador of Soul”, gave her diplomatic immunity from the charges.
Her attorney must have realized what he said, which was exactly want Adrienne wanted him to say, was, well ‘out there’ and he withdrew the motion the next day.
Guess she didn’t want to get into the ‘Godfather’ thing……
