Hit and Streak

When police arrived to investigate a single-car crash in Port St. Lucie, Fla., witnesses told officers the occupants of the car had run off. The odd part: the driver was pulling off her clothing as she ran. Officers followed the trail of discarded garments to a wood, and sent a police dog in to find her. It did: by then Angela C. Ferranti, 25, was down to her bra and panties. Police figure she stripped “in an attempt to conceal her scent from the K-9,” the resulting report notes. Ferranti was charged with drunk driving, possession of drug paraphernalia (in the car, not her undies), and leaving the scene of an accident. (RC/Treasure Coast Palm) ...In a Florida beach town, there’s an odd logic in stripping to blend in with the background.
