May 17 (UPI) -- Police in Massachusetts said the arrest of a drunken driving suspect took a bizarre turn when she was found to be carrying a bearded dragon in her bra.
The Taunton Police Department said officers responded to the scene of a crash about 1:23 p.m. Tuesday and they arrived to find the female suspect standing next to her vehicle while a male friend attempted to drive the car off the front lawn of a home.
Police said the vehicle had four flat tires, deployed airbags, and both bumpers were ripped off. Investigators said the 1999 Mercedes had crashed through six mailboxes before coming to a rest on the lawn.
