BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Police in Birmingham, Ala., were called Thursday to what looked like a woman shot dead in her car but found a Halloween reveler they described as drunk and passed out Thursday.

Birmingham police arrested the costumed woman on a DUI charge after responding to a report that she was shot.

The news site Al.com reports that a passerby called 911 in Birmingham on Thursday morning after seeing the woman slumped over her steering wheel at a traffic light.

Police say officers roused the woman and removed her from the SUV. Authorities say she was handcuffed and taken to the city jail on a DUI charge.

A photo of the woman by al.com showed fake blood covering much of her torso as she was apprehended.

Details on her identity weren't immediately available.
