Texas University Student Drives Barbie Jeep After DWI Arrest, Wins the Internet
Following her DWI arrest for refusing to take a breathalyzer test at a concert, Texas State University student Tara Monroe became a viral Internet sensation when she decided to drive a pink Barbie Jeep to school.
As Gawker writer Sam Biddle describes Monroe, she is “the antihero we deserve.” That’s probably a bit of a stretch, but since I am a native Texan, I can’t bring myself to totally disagree. Especially since, following the arrest and her father’s removal of any automotive means of transportation, Monroe took matters into her own hands and found a way to get around.
“Most people don’t find the things me and my friends do very funny, just immature, so I didn’t expect to get this big of a reaction,” the industrial engineering student told the San Antonio Express-News. “People who don’t know me are shocked but my friends weren’t even surprised because I do stuff like this all the time.”
