Shooting call leads police to drunken zombie

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Police in Alabama were called to what looked like a woman shot dead in her car but found a Halloween reveler they described as drunk and passed out in a bloody-looking zombie costume.

The news site Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/SrbNCn) that a passerby called 911 in Birmingham on Thursday morning after seeing the woman slumped over her steering wheel at a traffic light.

Police said officers roused the woman and removed her from the SUV. Authorities say she was handcuffed and taken to the city jail on a charge of driving while intoxicated.

A photo of the woman by al.com showed fake blood covering much of her torso as she was apprehended.

Details on her identity weren’t immediately available.
