It's the puking dog's fault.

At least that was the excuse a young guy gave police after crashing his car into a utility pole.

Police in Winona, Minnesota, report 18-year-old Michael Allen Butler called about four hours after the accident to confess.

Witnesses saw a man leaving the area walking a beagle.

Butler told police he crashed after his dog started "throwing up all over him."

Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams tells a local paper officers did find vomit in the car.

Butler now faces charges of driving without insurance or a license.
