(Newser) – Linda MacDonald was sent to adult timeout (the Vermont State Police's Brattleboro barracks) after she crashed her car into a fence Monday night and was subsequently arrested for drunk driving, CBS Boston reports. And, like a sullen toddler receiving a consequence, the 55-year-old Massachusetts woman posed for her mugshot not with a smile, but with her tongue sticking out.

Maybe she was peeved that cops didn't totally buy her reason for the crash. She says she veered off the road and into the fence in her 2011 Camry because she was lost and "on the telephone getting directions and writing them down on a legal pad" (yes, while driving), per a VSP press release. Police say they administered a Preliminary Breath Test at the scene, which returned a BrAC (that's breath alcohol content) of .10%. She's since been released and is to appear in court April 28. (More memorable mugshots: this guy.)
