And I thought I had a bad day.
Stephanie Dillard, 34, was arrested after wrecking her car into a bus and leaving her children at the scene of the accident. The children, aged 5, 12 and 16 suffered minor injuries in the wreck, according to police.
But that’s not all.
Allegedly, sometime after leaving her car — and her children — Dillard began taking off her clothes and was completely naked eating ice cream in the parking lot of a CVS pharmacy when authorities located.
Investigators claim that she resisted arrest.
Dillard is being held in jail on $2,000 bond and the children have been turned over to their grandmother, reports Click2Houston.com.
At this time, police have not been able to discern what prompted Dillard’s strange behavior.
While on the surface this is one of those moments where, for some people, the first reaction is laughter. My first thought was maybe the poor lady had a concussion or some other head injury that made her act erratically. After all, that’s what happened to Halle Berry when she allegedly fled the scene of an accident in 2000. The victim claims that the actress plowed into her after running a red light; but Berry said that she has no recollection of the events — because of head injury.
Maybe Dillard is suffering with a mental illness that caused her to leave her children in the car and just wander off, stripping and eating ice cream as she went.
Or, maybe she just said, screw it, I’m going to jail anyway, I might as well get some fresh air.
Whatever the case, thankfully no one involved was seriously injured and all are doing well.
