Pantsless Motorist

JANUARY 28--A female driver who was not wearing pants or underwear was sitting atop an empty bottle of Black Velvet whisky when police approached her following a recent traffic accident, according to a court complaint charging the motorist with drunk driving, lewdness, and other criminal counts.

Pennsylvania cops allege that Justine King, 33, struck another vehicle around 11 PM while driving near her home in Aliquippa, a city outside Pittsburgh. Police found King in the driver’s seat of her 2003 Chevrolet Malibu “with airbags deployed.” The vehicle was sitting in an intersection.

When told that she had hit another car, King (seen at right) replied, “No I did not. I live around the corner and was just picking up my boyfriend.” While peering into the vehicle, a cop “observed that King was not wearing any pants or underpants.” The garments, the officer added, “were on the driver’s side under the pedals.”

Officer Joshua Stanga also reported that King “was sitting naked on top of an open empty bottle of Black Velvet liquor.”

When directed to put on her clothes and exit the Chevy, King said, “I don’t have any pants! I left my home without them!” After ignoring several demands to get out of the car, King was pulled from the vehicle, handcuffed, and placed into a police cruiser. She was “extremely belligerent, kicking, pulling away, and struggling” as Stanga sought to detain her, according to the complaint.

Asked to identify herself, King responded, “The government got my name. You ain’t getting it! Ask the government.” King, who eventually provided her name, kicked out the cruiser’s back window, while also “continuously banging her head off the inside of the window panel.”

King was charged this month in connection with the September 30 incident. The January 15 complaint accuses her of drunk driving, resisting arrest, reckless driving, open lewdness, and disorderly conduct. She is scheduled for a February 20 District Court arraignment. (2 pages)
