Strike Four

When Catherine M. Butler, 26, was pulled over in Gates, N.Y., she was apparently on her way home from a costume party — she was made up as a zombie. Officers pulled her over for driving without headlights at 2:00 a.m., and ended up charging her with drunk driving. After booking, she was released to a sober friend, but “Somehow, she ended up back in her car,” says police spokesman Lt. Jon Ballard. That came to police attention at a little before 5:00 a.m., when Butler was pulled over again for swerving in and out of her lane as she drove. Butler, who was still dressed as a zombie, was again arrested and charged with drunk driving. She also has two prior drunk driving convictions. (RC/Rochester Democrat & Chronicle) ...After four times, she’s lucky the blood is fake.
