Police in Portsmouth, N.H., say a man has been charged with lying about his involvement in a hit-and-run accident by telling them his son was driving the vehicle.

Problem is, David Ponzer's son is an infant.

A police officer had questioned Ponzer about who "normally" drives the car and was told by Ponzer that his son, who was 19, drives the vehicle, but wasn't home, Foster's Daily Democrat reported.

Ponzer told police he would have his son contact them.

A police office said in an affidavit as he was leaving the house, he "happened upon one of the neighbors" and asked if they had seen Ponzer's son driving the vehicle recently.

"The subject laughed and informed me Ponzer's son is still an infant," the officer wrote.
