Drunk Driver Crashed Car While Carrying Bearded Dragon Bra
39-year-old Amy Rebello-McCarthy crashed her Mercedes while driving drunk in Taunton, Massachusetts. Police arrested her and found that she was carrying a bearded dragon in her brassiere.
Rebello-McCarthy struck six different mailboxes, some smashed the window of a parked car, before crashing her car. The Mercedes ended up with both bumpers ripped off, all four tires flattened, and the airbags deployed.
Witnesses claim that she was driving, but a male passenger hopped in the driver’s seat to try and drive the car back to the road. Rebello-McCarthy reportedly laughed to responding officers and asked for them to call a tow truck, all with slurred speech.
Her blood alcohol level was nearly double the legal limit and was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of liquor, driving to endanger, and marked lane violation. Before being taken away, Rebello-McCarthy informed police that she had a lizard in her bra.
The bearded dragon was turned over to animal control.
