Best excuse ever for not pulling over for a cop: “I couldn’t pull over because I was topless.” This was a Florida (of course) woman’s reason for speeding away from police when they attempted to pull her over for running a stoplight in her pickup truck. Thirty-five-year-old teaching assistant Mandy Ramsay was indeed driving around half-naked, but she claims she had good reason. She was on her way to surprise her boyfriend (or husband, it’s unclear) to whom the truck belonged. Well, that makes perfect sense. There’s no way you can take your top off once you arrive.
Anyhow, thanks to the magic of Facebook status updates, cops located Ramsay swimming in her backyard. She was arrested for eluding law enforcement. I’m going to go ahead and charge her with Gross Facebook Misconduct as well. Thanks for another great crime story, Florida! Keep ‘em coming. [Huffington Post]
