Police: Naked Cowgirl Drove Drunk


CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, Feb. 14 (UPI) — Texas police said they arrested an 18-year-old woman who led them on a chase while wearing nothing but a pair of cowboy boots.

Corpus Christi police said officers responding to a call about a suspicious person around 3:10 a.m. Sunday spotted Taylor Burnham, 18, standing next to a Jeep Wrangler wearing nothing but her boots, The Smoking Gun Web site reported Tuesday.

Burnham jumped into the driver’s seat of the vehicle and led police on a slow-speed chase into a neighboring subdivision, where she drove onto a sidewalk before coming to a stop.

Burnham, who appeared to be intoxicated, was charged with misdemeanor drunk driving as well as felony evading arrest in a vehicle.

Police said they do not know why Burnham, who was released Monday after posting $3,500 bond, was driving in the nude.
