Louisville, KY – After an evening of imbibing at the Club 21, 50-year-old Marie Reeves decided it was a fine time to get herself tatted. At about 1:00 Tuesday morning, a drunken Reeves stumbled across the street to the Ink Style Tattoo Studio and demanded some ink.
The tattoo artist refused to work on the woman, claiming she was too intoxicated to give the necessary informed consent for the procedure, and told her to come back when she wasn’t shitfaced. This displeased Reeves. A lot.
Pissed, Reeves reportedly jumped into her vehicle, aimed for the parlor’s front entrance and hit the gas. The artist who denied her later told police that Reeves backed the vehicle up and attempted to hit him, but he was able to dive out of the way.
Her next stop was the Saint Stephens Cemetery. That’s where police say she mowed down seven gravestones and broke her ride. Her vehicle disabled, Reeves called for a taxi. She directed the cabbie to a local hotel where she said she was staying with a friend, and ultimately stiffed him. He, in turn, called the police.
Officers already knew who they were looking for…Reeves had left her driver’s license with the bartender earlier in the evening. She was arrested on charges of DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and criminal mischief.
Wonder what kind of work she had in mind? My money is on a rebel flag tramp-stamp.
