There are some pretty obvious ways to get pulled over when you’re driving drunk. Obviously you never should be – but if you are stupid enough to get behind the wheel after slamming back a few Jaeger bombs, don’t be too surprised if you end up going viral the next day.

Mayann Christy of Schaumburg, Illionois, ploughed through a tree, got all 15 feet of the thing stuck in the bonnet of her car, and then continued to drive around town as though nothing out of the ordinary had happened.
A police officer was absolutely stunned when he saw the woman cruising down Roselle Road with the bonnet of her car wrapped tightly around her newly acquired foliage. Upon further investigation he realised that all of the air-bags inside the car had also been deployed.
The officer naturally proceeded to pull over 54 year old Christy, who told him that she remembered hitting the tree in her home town before driving to Illinois, but that she couldn’t recall precisely where or how long ago the collision had been. Yeah – vodka will do that to you, Mayann.
Taking to the police department’s official Facebook page, the force used this incident to highlight the dangers of drink driving:
A few weeks ago, a Roselle police officer saw a car driving southbound on Roselle Road with a 15-foot tree embedded in the front grill of the car. After stopping the driver, he also noticed the airbags had been deployed (apparently from hitting the tree). After an investigation, the Roselle officer arrested the driver for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol.
Yet another reason why you should not drink and drive!
Yeah, because getting a whole fucking tree wedged in your bonnet and then driving around town with the thing protruding like it just grew our of your engine happens all the time when you have a drink, doesn’t it? Don’t get me wrong, you shouldn’t drink and drive in any circumstances for many reasons but this one is definitely not at the top of the list.
Next time maybe she’ll think twice and take a leaf (if she’s got any left on that tree) out of this drunk dad – who get’s his 8 year old son to drive him home when he’s wasted.
