A nearly nude driver was charged with a DWI this weekend after driving into a wall in New Jersey.
According to the Washington Examiner, a woman wearing nothing but an unzipped jacket crashed into a stone retaining wall in New Jersey. The woman attempted to drive off but was arrested a few minutes later.
Officer Joseph Pensado pulled 36-year-old Catherine Giaquinto over to the side of the road. After noticing that Giaquinto was nearly nude, and seeing the damage on the front of her car, Pensado concluded that the woman was probably driving under the influence.
WTSP reports that Pensado questioned the woman about why she was naked. Despite only wearing an unzipped leather jacket Giaquinto denied that she was nude.
Sgt. John-Paul Beebe said that the woman was badly slurring her words and could not remember if she had been in an accident. She also didn’t know where she was going or why she was naked.
After noticing some clothes on the passenger seat the officers asked Giaquinto to get dressed. Beebe said that it took Giaquinto about 10 minutes to get dressed and when she was finished her dress was on inside out and backwards.
At this point the officers were pretty certain that the woman had been drinking but they still had to issue a field sobriety test. Needless to say, Giaquinto failed.
The nearly nude drive was placed under arrest and was charged with a DWI, refusal to submit a breath test, leaving the scene of an accident and careless driving. Giaquinto was also cited for not wearing a seat belt.
