Drink-Driver Swaps Car For Barbie Jeep

Tara Monroe, an industrial engineering junior, said her license was automatically suspended after refusing a breathalyzer test after a Waka Flocka concert. Her father drove to San Marcos from Kingwood, her hometown, to strip her of her vehicle, leaving her with a bike to get around.
 
What Monroe did was find a pink Barbie Jeep for sale on Craigslist for $60 and bought it from a little girl named Charlene, and used it in and around campus. The 20-year-old caught the Internet’s attention when she was spotted around the Texas State campus in San Marcos, Texas, in the hot pink Barbie mobile.
 
 
 
Students have Instagrammed and Snapchatted photos of the 20-year-old cruising across campus in the kiddie-sized ride. Charlene can zoom up to 5 mph.  “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 told the San Antonio Express-News. “People who don’t know me are shocked, but my friends weren’t even surprised because I do stuff like this all the time. It goes pretty fast when it's just me, so I usually make [my friends] walk behind me like parents taking their kid out to play. I'm just happy everyone thinks this is so hilarious."
