An Ohio drunken-driving suspect is blaming his arrest on Ozzy Osbourne.
William Liston was arrested Christmas Eve in suburban Cleveland. WJW-TV says he told police officers, "Ozzy Osbourne and his music made me do it."
Osbourne's hits as lead singer of heavy metal band Black Sabbath and as a solo artist include "Paranoid" and "Road to Nowhere."
Liston is awaiting arraignment. He's to appear in court Tuesday on a charge of operating a vehicle while impaired.
In an unrelated case, Liston pleaded not guilty in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court in a November break-in at a medical office. He was released on bond.
Telephone calls to the 33-year-old Liston's home in Aurora have gone unanswered.
