Southside bureau chief Dena alerted me to this.
Police in Culpeper, Virginia arrested 33 year old Joyce Ann Herbert after she crashed a U-Haul truck into a house. While she was naked. It's unknown why Ms. Herbert was naked, but she had recently been released from Culpeper regional hospital that morning.
Alert readers will remember the story of Mr. Stephen Brewer, who was arrested by Damascus, Viriginia police after leaving his truck and running naked through the streets.
Timid scientists would be hesitant to pronounce a trend or pattern based on two incidents occurring 7 months and 282 miles apart, but as I've stated before, narcozoology is a fearless and expansive new science, so I'll state boldly and with conviction that this is, in fact, a pattern.

Oh. Hold on a minute.
Washington State Patrol troopers pulled over a Seattle couple. They were naked. Alcohol was involved. The man was charged with drunken driving and one I've never heard of before, "embracing while driving." The woman was charged with possession of alcohol by a minor.
I see now that more research is needed.
