Thomasine Harjo - Tells Police She Couldn't Be Arrested For Drunk Driving Because She Was Required To Appear In DUI Court The Next Morning

Oklahoma City, OK (The Weekly Vice) - Thomasine Harjo, a 25-year-old Oklahoma woman was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly drove drunk through a traffic accident scene - then told officers that she couldn't be arrested because she had DUI court the next morning.

According to Oklahoma City police, officers were processing an accident scene where a fatality had occurred when Harjo ignored a police barricade and drove her vehicle through it anyway.

Investigators say the accident scene had been blocked off with patrol cars - with lights flashing - and had been corded off with crime scene tape. Several officers tried to get Harjo to stop prior to entering the accident scene, however she didn't acknowledge them.

When officers finally did get Harjo to stop, they smelled a strong odor of alcohol when she opened her door. When Harjo was asked why she did not stop for the barricade, she stated that she was simply following the car in front of her. No other cars, however, entered the accident scene.

While officers were placing Harjo into custody, she stated that she couldn't be arrested because she had to appear in court the next morning. When an officer asked what the court appearance was for, Harjo stated that it was for a previous DUI charge.

Harjo was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail and charged with DUI, driving without a valid driver's license and obstruction of justice.
