Police vs life giver

Any human activity could be matched to an existing item in criminal code. For the exceptions there is police inventiveness. Like that new code: ROWD - Resuscitating Opossum While Drunk.

A Pennsylvania man attempted to resuscitate "a road-killed opossum," state police say. But this was one possum who wasn't playing possum -- the ugly creature remained dead. Troopers responding to the scene in Oliver Township on Thursday determined that Donald J. Wolfe, 55, of Brookville, was drunk, according to the police report.
Now try to explain to a gendarme that all you wanted is to give the poor critter a chance. Try to get some sympathy for your humane endeavor.
Wolfe will be charged with one charge of public drunkenness, police said.
This is what you get in exchange...

We're all Donald J. Wolfe now!

Just as well they weren't around to do JC for the Lazarus job!

During my misspent youth, I was never drunk enough to try mouth-to mouth resuscitation on a possum, a pig manybe, but never a possum!

This should set a new answer to the old question:
How drunk was he?

Well, I can't say the same, since there were a few times I just can't account for my actions during a few hours...
