Texas State Student Gets DWI, Now Driving Pink Hot Wheels Around Campus

A Texas State University student that got a DWI is now riding around campus in a pink Barbie power wheels car…

No seriously, this is for real.

According to the Chronicle, Tara Monroe is an industrial engineering junior, said her license was automatically suspended after refusing a breathalyzer test after a Waka Flocka concert and that’s when she was arrested for DWI. Her dad then drove to San Marcos from Kingwood, and left her with a bike to get around.

After confessing that “Riding a bike around campus sucks, like really sucks,” she found a $60 power wheels car on Craigslist, who’s previous owner was a little girl named Charlene.

When we drove up to buy it Charlene asked where the little one was to test drive it to which I replied, ‘I am the little one,” she said. And that’s where her new car’s name came from- Charlene.

So if you’re anywhere near the University of Texas at Austin’s West Campus or Texas State’s campus, don’t be surprised if you spot the pink mobile cruising around at 5 mph.

Check out some pretty funny pics of Tara’s new ride —> HERE.

Most people don’t find the things me and my friends do very funny, just immature, so I didn’t expect to get this big of a reaction,” she said. “People who don’t know me are shocked but my friends weren’t even surprised because I do stuff like this all the time.”

Ahhhhh the college life!
