Bikini-clad woman covered in Jell-O arrested for suspected drunken driving in Milan
A Milan police officer found himself in a sticky situation while investigating a bikini-clad motorist for suspicion of drunken driving, reports said.
The officer stopped the woman’s 1998 Chevy Lumina just after it rolled through the stop sign of the Lewis Avenue and Lee Street intersection at about 10:20 p.m. on Feb. 8.
The driver was wearing only a peach-colored two-piece bathing suit and was covered in an orange substance she said was Jell-O. The 29-year-old Milan woman said she was coming from a Jell-O wrestling match at Dino’s Dugout Sports Lounge and didn’t have other clothes.
The woman’s eyes were bloodshot, and she slurred her words, reports said. She said she was at the bar for several hours and had six drinks and dinner before leaving.
The officer couldn't perform some standard sobriety tests because the woman had no other clothing and risked injury due to the 20-degree weather, a report stated. He even had the woman call a friend to see whether she could bring clothing to the scene, but the driver couldn't reach her, according to reports.
The driver attempted a few sobriety tests while seated in the vehicle and failed, police said. A preliminary breath test indicated a blood alcohol content of .147, nearly double the legal limit to drive under state law.
The woman was arrested and detained at the Milan Police Department until she was sober, reports said. The case was forwarded to the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s office.
