ARLINGTON, Va. – An Arlington County woman who woke up in the back seat of a strange car -- without remembering how she got there -- has been charged with stealing the vehicle.
Arlington County police say the woman went to a restaurant in Rosslyn on Saturday night and then to a nearby hotel. She got into a car that was to be parked by a valet and drove off.
The woman woke up in the car at about 1 a.m., then drove home in the car and went inside to sleep.
Police spokeswoman Ashley Savage says that when the woman awoke, she called police, who investigated and then charged her with stealing the car.
The woman's attorney, Jeff Overland, says she has "fuzzy memories of what happened," and may have been "involuntarily intoxicated."
