Monday mornings are always tough. Sometimes you just need to hit the snooze button for a few extra minutes, guzzle some coffee, strip off your clothes, climb to the top of an 18-wheeler on Highway 290 and dance like there's no tomorrow.
As KHOU explained, some people had an especially long commute this morning:
Highway 290 westbound is shut down at Huffmeister due to a crash and a disturbance involving a woman dancing on top of a big rig.
It's unknown why the woman is dancing, but deputies have arrived at the scene to take her into custody.

While there is no clear explanation for her dancing, the woman appears to be having the time of her life. Either that, or this is just another disturbing incident illustrating our nation's swiss-cheese mental health-care system and the onus it places on ill-prepared law enforcement agencies.
