Charles J. Schultz explained that he was driving his Chevy Cavalier and everything was fine. That's when the trooper informed Schultz that he was actually behind the wheel of a Ford Escort.
Police charged Schultz with auto theft, felony driving under the influence and misdemeanor drugs misconduct. Police said the 27-year-old's blood-alcohol content was .166, more than twice the legal limit.
It all started when Fairbanks police received a report shortly after midnight Friday that a Ford Escort had been stolen from the parking lot of a gentlemen's club. An officer spotted the stolen Ford two hours later - with Schultz driving.
Schultz swore he had no memory of taking the wrong vehicle outside the club, according to a criminal complaint.
