We all know that police hear all kinds of excuses as to why people were caught speeding, texting, in an accident etc.  I think it's probably safe to assume that most of the time, a lousy football team isn't the go-to excuse. But one New York Jet fan told cops that he got drunk and crashed his car because his football team stinks.

According to the Times Union, a 57 year old Jets fan from West Millford, NJ got drunk and crashed his car around 5:15 pm on Sunday.

When questioned by police about his actions, Christopher Greyshock told police 'I drank too much because the Jets suck!"

While he's not entirely wrong, it's hard to imagine he'll be pardoned. The crash came following an abysmal performance by his favorite team versus the Bills in a game the Jets lost 41-10.

According to the report, police apprehended an open bottle of whiskey in the car. He was charged with DWI and assault with auto.

Greyshock is also guilty of being a fan of a pretty bad football team.
