When Ripping Off Louis Vuitton Goes Wrong. Very, Very Wrong

Meet Bridgette Frank.

The 31-year-old Californian was arrested Saturday on a felony bad check charge and for failing to appear in court in a separate misdemeanor case. Frank, who lives in Covelo, a small Mendocino County town that includes the Round Valley Indian Reservation, was released from custody after posting $8500 bond.

Now as for her t-shirt.

Frank--whose rap sheet includes convictions for drunk driving, assault with a deadly weapon, child cruelty, and narcotics possession--appears to be wearing a t-shirt that aspires to be a bootleg Louis Vuitton product.

However, the name of the French fashion house has been rendered as “Loius Veitone.” A Google search for “Loius Veitone” returns no results, indicating that Frank’s shirt is likely the butchered product of an overseas counterfeiting operation, not some ironic take sold by a fashionista.

Public records do not indicate whether, at the time of Frank’s arrest, she was wearing a Rolez watch or carrying a Channel handbag.
