A Des Moines woman surprised police officers during a drunken driving arrest Thursday when she removed her clothing in a station holding area.
Officer Eric Hartman wrote in his report, "About midway through the implied consent advisory, this officer experienced a first after nine years on the department. The driver began stripping off all of her clothes while I read the implied consent advisory -- one clothing piece at a time. Eventually, she got down to a point where she was completely naked and walking up and down the holding area."
Police charged Sara Ann Fazio, 27, with driving while intoxicated, speeding, assault on a police officer and interference with official acts. She was stopped while driving near Second Street and Grand Avenue shortly before 2 a.m.
Officer Hartman said in a report that Fazio was uncooperative, then started yelling and finally began pulling away from the officer, telling a passenger to "Call the police." Hartman called for back-up. When other officers arrived one of them asked Hartman if he wanted her to be placed in handcuffs. Hartman responded, "Yes. Good luck."
