The irony was lost on him.

When cops in Dorset, Vt., found 55-year-old Donald Blood III sittin' in his vehicle in the yard of a residence, he told them he thought he had driven into a parking lot. It didn't take them long to determine his faulty judgment was probably the result of a generous load of alcoholic refreshment. Mr. Blood was charged with a DUI.

Rather than a parking lot, it was an historic landmark: the 1852 family home of William Griffith Wilson, the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. The site is dedicated as "a place of sanctuary where people can come to give thanks to God for their new lives."

For those who missed Wilson's message, though, it makes a handy parking place.
