Vicki Myers: Hey, Don't Blame Texas For That Masturbating, Gun-Toting Woman

The netz were all a-giggle yesterday with the story of Vicki K. Myers, who was discovered by police outside a Naperville, Illinois motel, in a van, topless, with a loaded gun, "pleasuring herself" with a variety of sex toys.

Just another Friday in Naperville? Apparently not. Myers initially told police she was changing clothes in the van, but eventually she admitted she had her kids with her in the motel room and needed some private time. (The kids were old enough to be left alone.)

Anyway, the news accounts all mentioned that she was from Texas, and one story pointed out "she told police she thought it was legal to have the gun in her van, as it is in Texas." (Yeah, but that's not always the case with sex toys!)

So of course, we wondered if she was from around here.

A check of a driver's-license database doesn't reveal any Vicki K. Myers aged 44, which is what she told police.

So we called Naperville PD, and Sgt. Gregg Bell straightened us out.

"She hasn't really lived in Texas in three or four years," he says. "She's been living around here; I think she's more or less homeless."

But the "Texas" information went out anyway.
