A passerby called 911 when she saw the 'bloodied' woman slumped at the wheel at a traffic light
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Police were called to what looked like a woman shot dead in her car but found a Halloween reveler they described as drunk and passed out in a bloody-looking zombie costume.
The news site Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/SrbNCn) that a passerby called police in Birmingham on Thursday morning after seeing the woman slumped over her steering wheel at a traffic light.
Police say officers roused the woman and removed her from the vehicle. Authorities say she was handcuffed and taken to the city jail on a driving under the influence of alcohol charge.
A photo of the woman by al.com showed fake blood covering much of her torso as she was apprehended.
