Pennsylvania (The Gaslamp Post) – A police officer investigating a drunk driving complaint was reportedly met at the door of a home by a nearly naked woman offering a gift. Monica Barnhart, 40, reportedly answered the door when police knocked, holding yellow roses and wearing only her underwear and a green top. According to Trooper Thomas Laskey, Barnhart had told him that she had been entertaining a “cop fantasy,” and reeked of alcohol. She offered Officer Laskey a rose, but he declined.
He instead ordered her to get dressed.
A neighbor reported seeing Barnhart driving erratically on the highway, swerving across several lanes, at speeds in excess of 90 mph. He said that he followed Barnhart to the house, where he reported seeing her exit the car wearing the same green top, but jeans as well. She was reported to have not been the homeowner, but is supposedly acquainted with the owner.
Barnhart was taken to a local hospital where a breathalyzer determined she had a blood alcohol content of 0.356. She was charged with driving under the influence.
Ms. Barnhart did eventually admit to police that she had been driving drunk, but then told her attorney that she was innocent.
