This Woman Hailed A Cab, Stripped Naked, Then Stole It

This is Jennifer Gille. Early Sunday, the 29-year-old hailed a cab in New Orleans, then tried to order a ride home to Michigan. When the cabbie refused, she stripped naked and stole the cab. No beads for her!

The cab driver picked up 29-year-old Jennifer Gille from a Covington, Louisiana, motel Sunday night and was instructed to take her to a local address.

But when the driver arrived at the address, the woman "refused to get out of the cab," police said in a statement.

"To further complicate matters, the female began acting crazy and took off her clothing, demanding the cab driver take her to Michigan," the statement from the police said.

Instead of making the 1,000-mile trek to Michigan, the cab driver went to a local police station for help.

When the driver went inside to get help, the woman stole the taxi, police said.

"It didn't take long to locate the vehicle; it was parked in a parking lot a block from the police department. Officers found the woman in the back seat of the cab still undressed," police said.

Gille now faces charges of vehicle theft and obscenity — which we guess is what people in Louisiana are charged with when they're naked and not on Bourbon Street.

(H/T to everyone!)

The comments on Jalopnik are great...

This was the best, I think:

The only thing I don't like about these stories is that there's so rarely any resolution. Yes, she stole the cab while starkers, but why? What were her motivations?

Was she coming down from a six-hour ecstacy high, and this is what she decided was appropriate in her incredibly serotonin-deprived state of depression? Was she tripping balls on acid, having decided that the cab was the enslaved Unicorn Prince Sparkular, and that the cabbie was some kind of slave-lord, holding the reins and flogging the poor creature in a manner most unbefitting of its royal nature? Or did she receive messages from the Great Old One who lives beyond the stars, telepathically contacting her in her dreams and telling her what he wishes of her? Sure, it may seem like nonsense to you, but who can fathom the mind of a being older than time itself?

Don't get me wrong, crazy is funny, but crazy with a reason is even better
