That wasn't all that was hidden from the officers-before being taken to the police station, Ribello-McCarthy told police she had a bearded dragon lizard hidden on her person.

Police responded to a Staple Street address at 1:23 p.m. this afternoon for a report of a auto crash.

Police say McCarthy is well-known to them.

Amy Rebello-McCarthy, 39, was "slurring her words" and "drooling" when she was approached by Taunton police officers following a Tuesday afternoon crash, cops said.

A Newton woman was arrested by Taunton Police, Monday, after she plowed through 6 mailboxes in her Mercedes and then proceeded to drive into a tree in at a Staple Street home.

No one was harmed during the incident but the news station talked to witnesses of the wreck who said that there are usually children waiting on the bus on the side of the road where McCarthy wrecked the auto. Six mailbox casualties. One vehicle with a shattered rear window in a driveway; another, stuck in place with four flat tires, the airbags deployed and both bumpers ripped off.

This may be meant to "undercut the impression that Trump is softening on Iran", The Associated Press wrote. But the US also announced new unrelated sanctions in a bid to show it wasn't letting Tehran off the hook.

Taunton Police Department took to Facebook to say: "That may have been possible if all four tires hadn't been flattened in the crash, if all the airbags hadn't deployed and both bumpers hadn't been ripped off".

"Sorry Amy, we can't move the auto right now", Taunton Police wrote in a Facebook post about the arrest. If we do, what will you use to hold yourself up?' She was also slurring her words and at times drooling.

Prior to taking the two individuals in for booking, authorities say McCarthy told officers that she had a lizard stuffed in her bra.

'You can't make this stuff up, ' police wrote in the post. She was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger and marked lane violation, while her passenger's gun was determined to be a fake and he was not charged for it. "Answer: In their brassiere of course!"

Her companion, whom authorities said managed to come up with the name Marvin K. Kyewalyanga, was "placed in Protective Custody". It faces no charges at this time'.
