Police said a 78-year-old central Pennsylvania man was doing things "His Way" when they charged him with drunken driving following a fender bender in a parking lot.

Authorities said Herbert Goss, of Tyrone, would quote only famous lines from Humphrey Bogart and Frank Sinatra when they responded to the wreck about 10 p.m. June 18.

When Tyrone Officer Barry Frye tried to question Goss, the suspect allegedly recited Bogart's famous line from "Casablanca" saying, "Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world."

Police said Goss segued into Sinatra's "My Way" once it became clear he was in trouble, saying "And now, the end is near, and so I face the final curtain."

Goss, who said he plans to fight the charges and isn't guilty, faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 6.
