She hit six mailboxes, some of which flew into the air, smashed the rear window of a parked car, and then crashed on to a lawn.

The Mercedes she was driving had four flat tires, the airbags were deployed, and both bumpers were ripped off. Man, she really did a number on that car!

When police got to her, she was laughing and slurring her words. She even asked police if they could call her a tow truck.

Her blood alcohol level was twice legal driving limit.

Before being taken into custody, Rebello-McCarthy revealed that she had a bearded dragon in her bra. There was also a 22-year-old man with her in the car, who was so drunk he couldn't even remember his name when officers asked him for it.

There was an air-soft gun in his waistband, and police took him into protective custody.

Thankfully the lizard is safe, it was turned over to animal control.
