How hot does it have to get in Houston before someone's brain gets completely fried? Apparently, it already happened last week.
A Houston woman was found naked in a CVS after crashing her car into a METRO bus near South Post Oak and Orem last Friday, according to police and KPRC Channel 2.
Stephanie Dillard, 34, allegedly walked away from the accident and left her three children -- ages 5, 12 and 16 -- in the car while she trotted off to a nearby CVS to get ice cream.
Dillard was found in the drugstore by Houston Police Department officers, where she had not only begun eating ice cream out of the freezer -- but was also stripping naked, police said.
The combination of ice cream and the lack of clothing had apparently not yet cooled Dillard off enough, as KPRC reported officers said that Dillard "put up a fight when officers tried to arrest her."
The children suffered only minor injuries in the accident and were turned over to their grandmother. Whom, we hope, did not offer to take them for consolatory scoops of ice cream.
