Milan Jell-O wrestler enters plea in drunken driving case
The bikini-clad Milan woman who was arrested for drunken driving after leaving a Super Bowl Sunday Jell-O wrestling event at a local bar pleaded guilty to a reduced charge.
Court records indicate Jennifer Lynn McComas, 29, pleaded guilty to one count of impaired driving for the Feb. 7 incident in Milan. Prosecutors agreed to drop one count of operating while intoxicated. Sentencing on the misdemeanor charge is May 25.
Police arrested McComas shortly after she left Dino’s Dugout at about 10 p.m. She was among a handful of participants in a Jell-O wrestling match that coincided with the Super Bowl at the bar. She was wearing a bikini and was covered in orange Jell-O when she was pulled over, reports said.
Officers opted against performing their usual sobriety tests due to her lack of clothing and cold temperatures. Preliminary breath tests showed a blood alcohol content of .147, nearly double the legal limit to drive in Michigan.
Police forwarded their reports to the Michigan Liquor Control Commission, which began investigating the establishment for four possible violations, including sale to intoxicated individuals and entertaining without a special permit. That investigation is pending.
