Woman strips naked, steals cab in Louisiana

COVINGTON, La. (AP) — Police in Louisiana say a woman stripped in the back seat of a cab, demanded the driver take her to her home state of Michigan and when he refused, stole his cab. 

Covington Police Capt. Jack West told The Times-Picayune that the driver picked up 29-year-old Jennifer Gille of St. Clair Shores, Mich., about 1 a.m. Sunday. West says Gille refused to get out when they reached their destination, stripped and demanded the cabbie take her home.

West says the driver went to a police station for help and when inside, Gille drove off.

Police found the cab parked about a block away and Gille was still naked. Police booked her on charges of unauthorized use of a movable vehicle and obscenity.

She was released from jail late Tuesday on a $75 signature bond. No phone listing for her could be found in either state.
