      They got scared and ran when they thought about all the gossip that would happen in the ward after being arrested for DWI. Possibly even losing their recommend? Now they can just claim they swerved to miss an elk and then got amnesia and wandered off into the night.

        Not an elk, but a dog crossing the road for which they set out in a hot pursuit and just haven’t returned to their car from the honeymoon with the hound.
