A York, Pennsylvania woman found herself in hot water today after she attempted to flee police by driving her vehicle into the Susquehanna River.
Police pulled into a York Haven boat launch Monday afternoon behind a woman, looking to arrest her for fleeing from them. Before they could, she gunned the engine, barreling into the Susquehanna River.
The acceleration from the black 2011 Subaru Outback propelled the SUV about 20 feet off-shore, Newberry Township Police Sgt. Keith Farren said Tuesday.
When officers tried to talk with the woman, she ignored them, Farren said. “She stayed in the car and continued to drink her beer,” he said. (H/T – Metoo)
So picture this little scenario: this lush is sitting in her car, which is slowly sinking into the frigid Susquehanna River, and she is ignoring police commands and offers of help until she finishes her beer. This woman will go down in the annals of Drunk History. Beethoven, Hemmingway, Susquehanna Sue.
