Woman in zombie costume charged twice with DWI
GATES, NY - Police say a woman wearing a zombie costume and makeup was charged with drunken driving twice within three hours after attending an upstate New York bar's "zombie prom" party.
Police in the town of Gates tell the Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester that 26-year-old Catherine Butler, of Rochester, was arrested around 2 a.m. Saturday when an officer spotted her driving without her headlights on.
She was taken to the police department, where a friend picked her up.
Officials say she got back in her car and was stopped again around 5 a.m. driving on the same road and still in her zombie costume and makeup. Her police mug shot shows were wearing fake blood and cuts on her face.
It couldn't be determined Wednesday if she has a lawyer.
