New Hampshire state Rep. David Campbell (D) said in an interview published Sunday that he was the driver of a BMW that ran over a group of ducks that “didn’t move” out of his way outside a hotel last week in Nashua, N.H.

The Nashua Telegraph newspaper reported that a witness said “as many as six” ducks were hit on Dec. 23 outside the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
