Woman in zombie costume charged with DWI - twice in 3 hours

GATES, N.Y. -- Police say a woman wearing a zombie costume and makeup was charged with drunken driving twice within three hours after attending an upstate New York bar's "zombie prom" party.

Police in the town of Gates tell the Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester that 26-year-old Catherine Butler, of Rochester, was arrested around 2 a.m. Saturday when an officer spotted her driving without her headlights on.

She was taken to the police department, where a friend picked her up.

Officials say she got back in her car and was stopped again around 5 a.m. driving on the same road and still in her zombie costume and makeup. CBS affiliate WTVH reports that Butler was again charged with DWI and failure to maintain her lane.

Her police mug shot shows her wearing fake blood and cuts on her face.

It couldn't be determined Wednesday if she has a lawyer.

WTVH reports that Butler is due back in court in November.
