Zombie Woman Charged With DWI Twice in 3 Hours

Time for that annual rite of fall: People arrested in costume after apparently having a little too much fun at the Halloween party. Two early entrants:

  • Zombie: A 26-year-old woman dressed as a zombie in Gates, NY, got charged with DWI about 2am Saturday after driving without her headlights on, reports the Democrat and Chronicle. A friend picked up Catherine Butler from the station, but three hours later, she was again arrested and charged with DWI. Same road, same costume.
  • Hello Kitty: In Gorham, Maine, a 37-year-old woman got stopped after driving in the wrong lane about 2am Sunday, reports WGME. Carrie Gipson was dressed as Hello Kitty, and police posted a photo of her headware, though it's not clear whether she was actually wearing the contraption while driving.
In other Halloween-related arrests, the yellow Teletubby is accused of stealing leftover Chinese food. (More weird crimes stories.)
