That's a pretty solid defense.
I've lived in my house for more than 15 years and there are days it takes me awhile to remember the names of some of the nearby streets. As strange as it may seem at first glance, when teaching a concealed carry class, home protection, or discussing setting up a safe room in one's home, we teach that one should have one's address and phone number written on a card near the phone. Under the high stress of a home intruder it isn't unusual for a person to forget or flub their own address or phone number and having the card handy reduces the risk of providing the 911 dispatcher with erroneous information.
Oh, I believe him about misremembering. I just wonder why the hell you also believe that a guy on a prescription for his ADD who can't remember the streets he "patrols" will remember the entire incident with accurate detail. He's filling in the details he can't remember and he thinks they're memories. Even if he passes that lie detection thing, we can't trust that what he says is really what happened.
I can't wait to hear the rationalization you come up with for that one.
