A drunk student at the University of Iowa was arrested Thursday night, after she flagged down a cop car said her name was Olivia Pope and claimed there was a car with a bomb headed for the White House.

Officer Brad Reinhard reported that 20-year-old Kelsey Cousins, “kept talking about ‘Olivia Pope’ and about a car with a bomb in it that was heading to the White House.” The officer added that, “‘Olivia Pope’ is a television show character and everything that defendant stated was nonsensical and rambling.”

Actress Kerry Washington stars in “Scandal” as Pope, a Beltway fixer and presidential mistress. The “Cyrus Beene” character, played by Jeff Perry, is a scheming manipulator who was fired from his post as White House chief of staff.
