CEDAR PARK, Texas - A Texas woman allegedly stole a bottle of $3.99 wine to get arrested and see her jailed boyfriend.
Alicia Walicke of Cedar Park was charged with misdemeanor theft and freed on $5,000 bond Friday. Williamson County jail records did not list an attorney for the woman.
Police say Walicke stole a bottle of wine from a gas station Wednesday. An arrest affidavit says police found the woman outside the business drinking the wine. According to CBS affiliate KEYE-TV, Walicke told police that her boyfriend was arrested earlier that evening and it was her fault, so she wanted to make things right and go to jail.
Police in Cedar Park, 15 miles northwest of Austin, didn't immediately identify the boyfriend or say whether the woman saw him.
