Some people will go out of their way to avoid the long arm of the law. Some opt to flee to avoid arrest, others are more creative - such as this US woman who found stripping to her underwear didn't put the police dogs off the scent.
It did, however, put a smile on the cops' faces...
Officers responded to a crash in Florida at 10:45pm reported a 1997 Buick had crashed into a barrier and that two people had fled from the vehicle. They search the area and found a 25-year-old blonde wearing only her underwear hiding in a wood.
Angela Ferranti claimed she had disrobed in "to conceal her scent from the K-9" though they could perhaps have followed the fumes of five beers and some cranberry vodka.
A police affidavit stated that she was driving with her boyfriend when he grabbed the steering in a fit of paranoia.
"She said she was driving when her boyfriend, who is on probation, was paranoid that the police were following them and grabbed the steering wheel and she hit the median," an affidavit said.
Police let her put her clothes back on, but not before asking her about a glass pipe with "marijuana residue" found in her car.
Ferranti was arrested on charges including driving under the influence of alcohol, possession of drug paraphernalia, leaving the scene of an accident with property damage and having no registration papers
Police couldn't say what happened to the paranoid paramour.
