(Newser) – Police say a 29-year-old woman in Jonesboro, Arkansas, smashed her car into a mobile home while she was three times over the legal limit. Nobody got hurt, luckily, and the case would have quietly disappeared into the police blotter if not for one awesome detail: Police say Jamie Craft got out of her car and tried to make her grand escape in a child's battery-powered toy truck of the Power Wheels variety, reports Fox19. It did not go well. After two guys stopped her, she walked to her mother's house, where she was arrested, "irate and very intoxicated." Also, she wasn't wearing pants the whole time.

You can't make up better stuff than this.... SNL your writers should be taking notes. Too bad no film crew was doing a cops episode with them. That would be one of the highest rated. Would beat the pants off the competition.

I would think a 29 year old drunk gal with no pants could have easily hitched a ride.
