Generally, if you hit a tree, and for whatever reason, it gets stuck in the grille of your car, you probably shouldn’t keep driving. This woman absolutely disagreed with that statement, though, and was spotted by the cops as she was driving down the road with a 15-foot tree wedged into the front of her car!
The cops pulled over Maryann Christy, 54, and saw that the airbags in her vehicle had been deployed, as well. We’re guessing it was from the tiny branch of a tree lodged in her car.
As crazy as this sounds, she was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. We bet you didn’t see that one coming! She claimed that she knew that she struck the tree somewhere in town, but just couldn’t remember exactly where!
Video of the traffic stop was recently posted to the police department’s Facebook page with the caption “Yet another reason why you should not drink and drive!”
It has become a bit of a media sensation and has been liked over 13,000 times, shared about 20,000 and received about 4,100 comments!
