(Newser) – Today, in Ironyland: A Massachusetts man was nailed for driving under the influence on Christmas Eve—after depositing his car on the front lawn of the former home of the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. The Rutland Herald reports that Donald Blood III apparently thought the Wilson House lawn was a parking lot. Bill Wilson's Vermont home is on the National Register of Historic Places and continues to host AA meetings several times a week; it operates as a "place of sanctuary where people can come to give thanks to God for their new lives," per its website. Blood has a Jan. 14 court date. (Read more Alcoholics Anonymous stories.)
