OrlandoSentinel A 26-year-old Orlando woman wearing “zombie” contact lenses and dressed as a “pig in a nude color bathing suit” for Halloween was charged with driving under the influence last week, an arrest report released today shows. Kristine M. Gagnier, a water-sports athlete, was pulled over just before 2 a.m. Friday for driving a Chevy Cavalier erratically on Orange Avenue, the report said. Gagnier, a wakeskater, failed sobriety tests after she was stopped by Deputy Jeff Lotter. A breath test pegged her blood-alcohol level at .120 and .121 more than an hour after she was pulled over. The limit for Florida drivers is .08. Lotter’s report doesn’t include any details about where Gagnier was going or where she was coming from when she was pulled over. Lotter spotted her driving southbound on Orange Avenue north of Holden Avenue at 1:55 a.m. “While behind the vehicle I observed it leave the travel lane to the right, crossing over the fog line, and then over the lane divider line to the left, and then over the lane divider line to the right,” Lotter’s report said. “The vehicle crossed over or touched the lane divider line additional times after and continued in this manner until it reached Holden Avenue.” Lotter turned on his emergency lights and as her vehicle turned right from Orange Avenue onto Holden Avenue. The deputy noted “several indicators that lead me to believe that Gagnier was impaired,” including an alcohol odor, red eyes, slurred speech and an “admittance to drinking,” the report said. Before he made her perform field-sobriety tests, Lotter asked if she had any medical problems. She said no. “Gagnier was wearing zombie contacts,” the report said. She failed the tests and was arrested. She was taken to the Orange County DUI Center, where breath tests were taken shorty after 3 a.m. “After the breath test Gagnier was allowed to go to the bathroom and allowed to put on a jail jump suit,” the report said. “Gagnier was further processed and transported to the jail. (note: It was Halloween, Gagnier was dressed as a pig in a nude color bathing suit.)
Were the cops offended by Kristine Gagnier’s Halloween costume? Maybe they thought that she was taunting them, maybe she got pulled over on purpose, just to taunt the arresting officers and call them pigs. No? It was just a coincidence and she was just drunk driving? Damn. That would have made for a better story.
I think Kristine Gagnier got lucky though, because she looks creepy as hell with those zombie contact lenses in her eyes in the mugshot, and if the arresting officer had just watched a marathon of “The Walking Dead” before this arrest he might have shot her in the head.
Too bad for Kristine Gagnier, I bet she cleans up alright when she is not dressed like a possessed zombie pig in a bikini with a hunger for human flesh, tough break.
