Drunk Woman Calls 911 for Help Getting Out of Her Car
Sure, Harry Houdini may have successfully crawled through six feet of earth after being buried alive. But could he get out of his own car with ten shots of vodka sloshing around in his belly?
That answer may be lost to history, but if you ask 55-year-old Carol Frances Omeara of Billings, Mont., she can tell you that it’s no simple task.
Omeara earned her fourth drunk driving charge after calling 911 to report that she was “just too damn drunk” to escape the confines of her own vehicle, which was parked about two feet from the curb in front of her house.
An officer reported to the scene and, sure enough, a befuddled Omeara sat trapped in the driver’s seat. The Billings Gazette reports Omeara told the officer she spent about five hours at a nearby bar, during which time she consumed a pint of vodka. Legend has it that she then drove home unscathed, where she parked and invested the next four hours in a failed attempt to open the car door.
Omeara expressed her gratitude to her rescuers by consenting to an alcohol breath test, in which she blew a blood alcohol level of 0.311, almost four times the legal limit.
Omeara remains jailed on $3,000 bond, but with no vodka impairing her abilities, there’s no telling if steel bars can contain her.
